5G Spectrums: Not All Bands are Created Equal

5G network has a broad EMF spectrum which divides 5G connectivity into three main types based on their radio wave spectrum, coverage, and latency.

Low-band Spectrum

5G networks with frequencies under 1 GHz and can reach hundreds of square miles for nationwide coverage. Low-band 5G networks are 20% faster than 4G LTE with a download speed of around 250 Mbps.

Mid-band Spectrum

5G networks with a frequency spectrum of 1-6 GHz or what is known as sup-6 GHz. Mid-band 5G networks focus around metropolitan areas with speed around six times faster than 4G LTE, ranging from 125-900 Mbps.

High-band Spectrum (mmWave)

5G mmWave frequency bands are ten times faster than 4G LTE. With a spectrum range of 24-50 GHz, 5G mmWave low-latency speed can reach up to 10Gbps of data rates. High-band 5G networks have coverage just over a kilometer which are centered around dense urban areas.
