Buffer bloat on Verizon 5G

Has anyone figured out a solution to the terrible buffer bloat on Verizon 5G? I use CrashPlan for offsite backups anytime it's running a backup my connection becomes virtually unusable. The same happens if I have any device say, uploading to YouTube or anywhere else. The response time increases to the 5,000-8,000ms range. I've been able to temporarily solve it through my Ubiquiti USG using Smart Queues but that's not a perfect solution and limits my total throughput to ~120mbps.

Generally a buffer bloat issue this bad is due to configuration issues in the ISP provided router/uplink device but since the management portal on the 5G CPE is blocked, I can't access it to try any changes.
