I guess 1800 is used more in urban areas and 800 is used in rural areas due to its lower wavelength.
They have been paid for up until 2030

I came to Dun Laoghaire with a Xiaomi Mi A1.
Today I went to the 'Three' shop located at 75 George's Street Lower and bought prepaid chip (€ 20). I have not been able to connect in 4g since then, only 2g and 3g with much sacrifice. The Xiaomi Mi A1 has 20 (800) and 3 (1800) bands, used by 'Three' for 3g and 4g connections, and a connection is too slow!
What can be happening?

You should be getting connected to the 4G network, are you seen the 4G or LTE+ icon on the top of the screen?
Check that in your settings Preferred network type is 4G/WCDMA

@drigorodrigoA possible reason for your problem is that Xiaomi phones exist with different ROMs, and some don’t have the 20 (800) band ; specifically, the Mi A1 doesn’t seem to have it its Indian and Chinese versions. All have the 3 (1800) band, though, if those specifications are correct, so I don’t know. Do you have the global version ? I have a Redmi Note 4, I hope 4G is going to work next week when I arrive in Ireland
