As we all know that, both 5G and 5GHz Wi-Fi are used for wireless connection. In fact, they are two completely different terms.

5G & 5GHz Wi-Fi


5G is the fifth generation of wireless telecommunications standards, which is an update on speed and performance. the “G” of “5G” stands for “generation”.

5GHz Wi-Fi

In contrast, 5GHz Wi-Fi refers to a frequency band — five gigahertz. Wi-Fi mainly uses two frequency bands, which are 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Compared to 2.4GHz, which only has three available channels and a limited network speed, 5GHz Wi-Fi provides more available channels to increase speed. For example, in an apartment that has its own router and Wi-Fi network, 5GHz Wi-Fi runs much faster than 2.4GHz Wi-Fi.
