Fidium Fiber's WiFi supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands on its network. These two bands offer different advantages and can be used based on the specific needs of the devices connecting to the network. The Fidium Fiber network is adaptive meaning it manages your devices in the background using both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks. The network will move your devices to the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz network as needed to give you the best WiFi coverage and service.

2.4 GHz Band: Offers wider coverage and better penetration through walls and solid objects, making it suitable for devices that are farther away from the WiFi router or in different rooms. However, it is more prone to interference from other household devices like microwaves and cordless phones, and typically offers slower data rates compared to the 5 GHz band.

5 GHz Band: Provides faster data rates and is less likely to experience interference from other devices, making it ideal for high-bandwidth activities like streaming high-definition video, online gaming, and large file transfers. The range of the 5 GHz band is generally shorter than that of the 2.4 GHz band, and it may have more difficulty penetrating walls and other obstacles.

Modern WiFi equipment provided by internet service providers like Fidium typically supports dual-band WiFi, allowing devices to connect to the most appropriate frequency band automatically based on distance, signal strength, and network congestion. This dual-band functionality ensures that users can enjoy a more reliable and faster internet experience.
