The LTE Band 5 FDD 850MHz frequency isn’t a mainstream band for LTE deployment globally, but has been used mainly in deployments in Asian markets such as Korea and Philippines and America areas.
LTE Band 5 overview
LTE band 5 is at frequency bands 824-849 MHz and 869-894 MHz, which is FDD 850Mhz and bandwidth at 25MHz. It’s the reframing of GSM 850MHz and most commonly deployed in North America and Latin America areas.
For the lower frequency, 850MHz is able to better penetrate through obstacles – such as buildings. This improved signal strength means data can be transmitted to a compatible device faster than when there is poor signal strength.
