What Frequencies Are Provided?
The Deco Whole-Home Wi-Fi System provides your home with dual-band frequencies of 2.4 and 5 GHz.
The Difference between 2.4 and 5G Frequencies
The primary difference between 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies is the range and the speed of the two frequencies. If you think back to high school physics, you'll remember that frequency is simply the velocity of the wave divided by its wavelength. A wave with a high frequency also has high velocity, but a smaller range. Meanwhile, a lower frequency wave has greater range but less speed. Therefore, if you want faster upload and download speeds, then you'll want to use the 5 GHz frequency of your whole home Wi-Fi system. Because the 5 GHz frequency has a greater frequency and therefore has faster speeds. However, you might find that using the 5G frequency at the end of your home that's furthest from the router provides you with a slower internet speed than the 2.4G frequency. This is because the 2.4G frequency has a greater range than the 5G frequency. With the dual-band capability of this home Wi-Fi system, you're given the ability to seamlessly switch between 2.4 and 5G frequencies to give yourself the high-speed internet you need, whenever you need it. But there is one last aspect of 2.4 and 5G frequencies that needs to be covered, and that is interference. Because 2.4G is the most used frequency for home Wi-Fi systems, you might experience slower speeds due to interference of other homes using the same frequency for their Wi-Fi.
