    Frequency bands that have been assigned to be used by cellular providers.

    Just like a radio station operates at a specific frequency that you tune on the radio dial, your cell phone works at certain frequencies. Frequencies are grouped together in bands (or ranges of contiguous frequencies) often referred to as "spectrum". Certain bands are reserved for specific uses such as the AM band radio, FM radio, over the air TV signals, GPS satellites, etc. other bands are auctioned off or sold to cell phone providers for mobile phone use. Different frequency bands have different qualities that can make them better for certain uses. Such as lower frequencies can usually travel farther and are more likely to penetrate walls and buildings making them better for rural areas where cell towers are further apart.
