* 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi will support up to 450 Mbps or 600 Mbps(depending on the
class of the router.)
* The 2.4 GHz band is a pretty crowded place, because it’s used by more
than just Wi-Fi. Old cordless phones, garage door openers, baby monitors, and other devices tend to use the 2.4 GHz band
The longer waves used by the 2.4 GHz band are better suited to longer ranges and transmission through walls and solid objects
* It’s arguably better if you need better range on your devices or you have a lot of walls or other objects in the areas where you need coverage
* However, because so many devices use the 2.4 GHz band, the resulting congestion can cause dropped connections and slower-than-expected speeds.
* 5 GHz Wi-Fi will support up to 1300 Mbps.
* The 5 GHz band is much less congested
* you will get likely get more stable connections
* On the other hand, the shorter waves used by the 5 GHz band makes it
less able to penetrate walls and solid objects
* It has a shorter effective range than the 2.4 GHz band
