Way back in time, when the Wi-Fi first came to existence, there two variants of it: 802.11a and 802.11b. From the perspective of a consumer, there wasn’t much difference between the two. The devices that were based on the 802.11 b were comparatively less extravagant and widely available compared to the 802.11a. Due to this reason, the b variants of WI-Fi turned out to be much more popular than its counterpart. Now, the 802.11 b operates in the spectrum of a 2.4 GHz variant. However, nowadays this spectrum is getting a bit too crowded and so, in order to address the digital sound that comes along with the device, the 5 GHZ W-FI is a making a much needed comeback.
