| Figure 6. 700 MHz spectrum has a ten-fold coverage advantage over 2.5 GHz spectrum |
The diagram in this figure shows four concentric circles representing relative cell sizes for four types of spectrum, 700 MHz, 850 MHz, 1.9 GHz, and 2.5 GHz. The largest circle representing the coverage of cells using 700 MHz spectrum has ten times the coverage area of the smallest circle, representing use of 2.5 GHz spectrum, with coverage area declining as spectrum frequency rises.
