No there is no drawback in using the same wifi name for both bands, However, the devices which are closer to the router will work fine the devices far from the router may face connectivity issues once in a while as if your devices may not understand which band to connect to because the 2.4 GHz band gives you more strength than 5 GHz.

This service is the easiest and most friendly anyone could hope for. I have had a few instances to use the service due to moving and equipment purchases.

There is nothing that cannot be taken care of by Austin, my technician.
