High-Band 5G
What is high-band 5G?
One of the 3 bands of 5G, high-band 5G – also known as mmWave (millimeter wave) – refers to the 24-40 GHz spectrum. High-band 5G promises blazingly fast speeds and has a theoretical max of up to 20 Gbps+, but has a much shorter practical range than the other bands so it requires a high density of small cells (which can be expensive).
