As a successor to the present 4G technology, 5G is a modern technology with a new interface that is being developed. The main purpose of 5G is to deliver a diversified collection of services to clients worldwide, including fast data speeds, wider coverage, low latency, cheap cost, high system capacity, and a variety of connectivity alternatives. Every major carrier intends to build both millimetre wave and sub-6 5G networks, but they choose to start with the lowest frequency bands and work their way up the frequency spectrum. The sub-6 spectrums are a better option for 5G. The recent deployments of the 5G networks are focused on the sub-6GHz spectrums. However, there are limited works reported on the 5G in sub-6GHz and this has motivated us to evaluate the performance of the 5G network in sub-6GHz spectrums. This project evaluates the performance of a 5G sub-6GHz network and the performance of the 5G is compared with the 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network. The Vienna 5G System Level Simulator is a numerical model of wireless communication networks that is used to develop and improve mobile communication standards. It allows the community to do repeatable simulations of crucial scenarios in preparation for 5G and beyond. The performance of the 5G sub-6GHz throughputs is evaluated using the Vienna 5G Simulator. Extensive simulation works that considered a variety of factors, i.e., bandwidths, the number of users, users speed, and carrier frequencies were carried out to evaluate the performance of the 5G sub-6GHz network. The numerical findings indicate that 5G sub-6GHz performance is always better than LTE performance under identical simulation circumstances, demonstrating that 5G always outperforms LTE. The average cell throughput of the 5G sub-6GHz is 8 times more than the 4G network. The average peak throughput dropped when the mobility speed of the users increased. The throughput of the 5G network is directly proportional to the frequency bandwidth allocated.
