The culprit behind this issue is the latest version of network operator settings. Before the March update rolled out, the Network Operator Setting was at version eir_ie-43000000002.10 and 5G was working well and good at this build number. But with the release of the March update, the Network Operator Setting version got bumped up to eir_ie-43000000002.12 and this subsequently gave rise to the 5G bug. So the latest version of NOS could well be the reason behind this issue.

Well, well, well, the April update has just been rolled out but judging by the changelog, Google hasn’t addressed the 5G issues of the Pixel 7 series.

Anyways, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope it gets ironed ot sooner than later, if not with April then with the May update.
