5G technology is still a mystery for all people. Even though 5G is widely available in the USA, most users can’t use the full potential because of the low band. Only Verizon and AT&T currently provide mmWave 5G, Which is not widely available in all areas. Because mmWave Antennas can’t cover vast regions, They have to plant more antennas, and the process is complicated. Now, US carriers come with a solution called C-Band 5G which can cover more area. Even though no multiple lists support this band, TCL 30 V with C-Band 5G is available for Free with 24 Months commitment on Verizon.
