What is a WiFi Band

A WiFi band is a specific wireless broadcast frequency that a WiFi device can use to send or receive data. The most common WiFi bands are 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, though some devices support uncommon standards like 60 GHz for specific applications. WiFi bands are standardized to maintain compatibility with all kinds of devices and to meet regional broadcast regulations, though not all devices are capable of using all WiFi bands. The number and type of WiFi bands that you need for your network depends on the number and type of WiFi devices that you use. There are different types of WiFi bands available, including single-band, dual-band, and tri-band. Single-band routers operate on the 2.4 GHz frequency band, while dual-band routers operate on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, and tri-band routers operate on three frequency bands. The higher the frequency, the faster the data transmission and shorter the signal range. However, higher frequencies also have reduced broadcast range. Dual-band and tri-band routers are preferred by many because of the number of channels and the bandwidth available
