Force FortiExtender FEX-511F to LTE mode?

Curious if anyone knows of a directive which can be used to force an FEX-511F FortiExtender into an LTE-only mode instead of allowing 5G?  I have one of these that I'm trying to make use of with T-Mobile.  I'm in an area where there's plenty of strong LTE coverage, but unfortunately I'm on the very edge of 5G with just enough to generate an RSSI that tends to move around from -98 to -103 dBi, which is unusable, but just enough signal to make the extender want to stay connected to 5G instead of trying LTE.  I'd like to force it to not use 5G until they put a closer tower in but can't find a way to do that.

I had a brief look and can't see anything. Is there any way your carrier can disable 5G on your account?

Cheers,
