The Different Types of 5G & How it Affects Coverage:

  • Low-Band Channels:
    -Uses frequencies between 600 and 2,000 MHz.
    -Greatest amount of coverage, good in urban and rural areas.
    -Coverage measured in miles.
    -Good building penetration.
    -Mounted on larger towers and rooftops.
    -Small to medium improvement of download speeds over 4G LTE.
  • Mid-Band Channels:
    -Uses frequencies between 2 and 7 GHz.
    -Medium coverage, good in urban and suburban areas.
    -Coverage measured in thousands of feet.
    -Adequate building penetration.
    -Mounted on medium-sized towers and rooftops.
    -Significant improvement
    of download speeds over 4G LTE.
    -Mid-Band is regarded as the "Sweet Spot" for ideal 5G coverage & data speeds.
  • High-Band Channels:
    -Uses frequencies between 7 and 50 GHz (a.k.a. millimeter or mmWave spectrum)
    -Very limited coverage, only used in areas of high population concentration.
    -Coverage measured in hundreds of feet.
    -May be unavailable in buildings.
    -Can be mounted on light poles and short structures.
    -Dramatic improvement
    of download speeds over 4G LTE.
  • Multi-Band Channels:
    -Uses various technologies to combine channels within the same or different bands.
    -May use non-5G channels to yield 5G equivalent performance.
