In my previous 5GHz video, there was some confusion between 5GHz Wi-Fi Band and 5G Mobile network. Personally I blame the 5G wording on the Wi-Fi names. So here is the difference between the two.

The 5GHz frequency band should not be confused with 5G mobile network.
5G is the 5th generation mobile network. To use 5G network you need a SIM card inserted into a 5G supported smartphone. 5G is transmitted through mobile phone transmitters that are usually outside or fixed on top of buildings. 5G is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks.

Remember, to use 5GHz Wi-Fi you have to connect through a Wi-Fi Router and to use 5G, you need a SIM inserted into a 5G supported smartphone.
Basically you do not need a SIM card in order to utilize the 5GHz Wi-Fi Band.
