Wireless Band Options – Wi-Fi 2.4G and Wi-Fi 5G
Your MTN router can transmit two types of Wi-Fi networks: Wi-Fi 2.4G and Wi-Fi 5G. These networks differ in bandwidth and transmission speed.
- Wi-Fi 2.4G:
- Offers wider coverage but has lower bandwidth and speed compared to Wi-Fi 5G.
- Suitable for basic internet tasks like browsing and emailing.
- Wi-Fi 5G:
- Provides higher bandwidth and speed, enabling seamless streaming, gaming, and large file transfers.
- Offers shorter coverage range compared to Wi-Fi 2.4G.
Depending on your usage requirements, you can choose to connect to either Wi-Fi network. If you need faster speeds for demanding activities, Wi-Fi 5G is the better choice. For general internet usage, Wi-Fi 2.4G is sufficient.
