Differences between your WiFi options: 2.4GHz vs. 5GHz

< Back

Have you ever faced different WiFi network options, all seemingly the same except for suffixes like 2.4GHz and 5GHz? Here’s a simple breakdown:

The suffixes 2.4GHz and 5GHz denote the specific frequency bands used by your modem:

  • 2.4GHz: Extends connectivity over longer distances but at slower speeds. It may occasionally encounter interference from devices like microwaves and cordless phones.
  • 5GHz: Delivers faster speeds, ideal for bandwidth-intensive activities such as streaming and gaming, but within a limited range.

Optimising your WiFi setup is key to ensuring an optimal internet experience.
