Changing from 2.4 to 5 GHZ

Changing from 2.4 to 5 GHZ

So I noticed that some devices went from 5 GHz (fastest internet you can get) to 2.4 GHz (slower), like my phone. My phone was not as fast. When I checked the internet speed on my phone during the time I had 5 GHz my download speed was like 250 mbps. Then it went to 2.4 GHz and the download speed was around 60mbps. Is there a way to manually change this or does it do it automatically? Because I'm not paying for high speed internet just for 2.4 GHz

You can edit the Networks to be separated instead of combined. And use your devices on which band you choose
