5G is being delivered in multiple formats and frequency bands to increase user experience into different areas, coverage, and capacity, for example 5G implementation in low-bands (e.g. < 1 GHz) provides great coverage but spectrum is fragmented with channels typically 5, 10, 15 or 20 MHz wide, limiting capacity; and 5G in high-bands (e.g. >24GHz) provides great capacity with channels 100MHz wide or greater. However, coverage is limited due to high propagation and penetration loss. Therefore, 5G in mid-bands (e.g. 1 to 7 GHz) creates a significant opportunity to deliver high capacity with adequate coverage.
