Upgrade To 5GHz
Are you experiencing slow internet speeds or frequent disconnection when using your Internet through WiFi? There is a high chance that it is a result of wireless interference. Wireless interference occurs when multiple devices using the same wireless frequency band are in close proximity of each other. When wireless interference occurs, it disturbs your devices ability to communicate with your wireless router resulting in slow internet or frequent disconnection. Most devices currently use 2.4Ghz wireless frequency band, hence routers operating in 2.4Ghz frequency band network has a very high chance of wireless interference. It is found that 75% of all slow internet complaints we receive at Vianet currently is a result of wireless interference.
Which is why we are introducing 5Ghz Dual Band router for our customers. 5Ghz wireless network helps resolve wireless interference issue. Not only that it also allows for higher data transfer speeds compared to 2.4Ghz wireless network. This results in faster speeds and a more consistent high speed Internet experience. It is a must for Internet intensive applications such as video conferencing, video streaming, online gaming, and heavy downloads.
So take your Internet to the next level and upgrade to 5Ghz!

1. What is 5Ghz and why should I upgrade to 5Ghz?
Most if not all are connected to the Internet wirelessly to the WiFi router at our home or office. The router communicates with the devices using wireless signals. These wireless signals operate on certain designated frequency bands, the most common wireless signal frequency band used is 2.4 Ghz. Routers that use 2.4 Ghz frequency band has limitations such as below:
High wireless interference:
Multiple devices and routers using the same wireless frequency nearby cause signals to interfere with each other. Since a lot of devices in the market currently use 2.4 Ghz wireless signal frequency band, there is high probability of wireless interference. If you have a 2.4Ghz WiFi router at your home and office, there is a high chance of wireless interference from other devices using 2.4Ghz frequency band in your area which disturbs the ability of your device to communicate with your WiFi router which results in slow internet or frequent disconnection of Internet.
Lower speed capability:
2.4Ghz frequency band router have lower data transfer speeds as compared to 5Ghz routers. 5Ghz router is a must for high speed wireless Internet experience.
A 5Ghz wireless frequency band router helps solve these issues.
As the 5Ghz wireless frequency band is not as common as 2.4Ghz frequency band, there is little wireless interference. Which means customer will experience better, higher speed and more consistent Internet performance. 5Ghz frequency band also supports higher data transfer speeds, so customers who use high speed packages must use 5Ghz frequency band routers to experience the best possible Internet speeds wirelessly.
One thing to note is that 5Ghz wireless frequency band has lower range than 2.4Ghz frequency band. So if you require high speed, more consistent Internet connection it is recommended to connect to the 5Ghz wireless frequency band router. And if you require more range but are not using heavy Internet demanding applications then it is recommended to connect to 2.4Ghz wireless frequency band.
Luckily the 5Ghz Router that we are offering support dual band. Which means it operates in both 2.4 Ghz as well as 5Ghz wireless frequency band. So customers have the best of both worlds. When using Internet intensive applications such as video calls, video streaming, online gaming, downloads we recommend using 5Ghz wireless network and staying close to the router. And when mobility is more important but are not using Internet heavy applications we recommend connecting to the 2.4 Ghz Network. Both networks (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) networks will be shown in the WiFi list when connecting to your WiFi, so you may connect and switch networks easily as per your convenience.
2. What is dual band router?
The 5Ghz router that we provide is a dual band router. Dual band routers are routers that operate in both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz wireless frequency bands. So customers have the best of both worlds:
5Ghz wireless network offer higher speeds and more consistent connection than 2.4Ghz network. This makes 5Ghz network perfect when using Internet intensive applications such as video calls, video streaming, online gaming, and downloads. However, it has less range so the device should be near the router.
2.4Ghz wireless network on the other hand has high range which is perfect when mobility is more important but are not using Internet heavy applications.
In a dual band router, both networks (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) networks will be shown in the WiFi list when connecting to your WiFi, so you may connect and switch networks easily as per your convenience.
3. Who should upgrade to 5Ghz Router?
Customers who are experience slow internet speeds in their wireless network due to wireless interference and customers who require high speed internet experience especially for tasks such as video calling, video streaming, online gaming, and downloads.
4. Will all of my devices support 5Ghz?
Most if not all recent devices support 5Ghz wireless network band. Your device must have 5Ghz WiFi network capability to use 5Ghz wireless network band on that device. Please check your device specifications for compatibility.
