THE THREE 5G TYPES AND THEIR DIFFERENCES
Low band 5G
The 5G low band can be compared most closely with the 4G LTE standard because it uses the same frequency ranges. The channels used for this are those on which the previous analog TV transmitters had operated and which were reallocated for mobile applications after they were switched off. However, low-band does not mean that it is less efficient than its LTE predecessors; instead, data transmission rates that are around ten times faster than 4G can be achieved here. In addition, large distance ranges can be covered in this frequency range, as was also necessary for TV transmitters. Low band refers to frequency ranges below 1 GHz. In Germany, the range between 700 and 800 MHz is used. The advantages of low-band 5G are therefore large ranges, as required in the flat countryside with few base stations, but data transmission is not as fast as in the mid- and high-band ranges.
