Exploring the Differences Between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and MyWiFi XtremeA wireless router relies on different radio frequencies to transmit the internet to WiFi-connected devices, such as laptops, tablets, smartphones and gaming systems. There are two main types of WiFi speeds – 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, but what is the difference?

2.4 GHz

Pros

2.4 GHz has a larger coverage area, and it’s much better at penetrating solid objects, such as the walls in homes or offices.

Cons

Because 2.4 GHz has a lower data rate of transmission, it’s typically prone to more interference. Additionally, since 2.4 GHz is more accessible at transmitting signals throughout homes, more devices usually share this frequency.

5 GHz

Pros

5 GHz has a higher data rate, which means it experiences less interference than 2.4 GHz frequencies. As a result, there are typically fewer devices that use the 5 GHz frequency.

Cons

Due to 5 GHz having a smaller coverage area, it’s not good at penetrating solid objects in homes or offices.
