In new NetworkManager has a regressio, which does not allow to choose network type. Anyway network type can set by editing /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/your_connection file. An example:

sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/"Sonera Oletus 1"

…. add a line under apn-line


…… save and quit

Ctrl o
Ctrl x

Different connection types:

network-type=0 = 3G
network-type=1 = 2G
network-type=2 = preferred 3G
network-type=3 = preferred 2G
network-type=4 = preferred 4G
network-type=5 = 4G
