Not sure how well documented this is but my Virgin SuperHub 3 supports 5Ghz frequency (802.11a/n/ac mixed) as well as the default 2.4Ghz (802.11b/g/n mixed). 

The newest generation of Wi-Fi signaling in popular use, 802.11ac utilizes dual band wireless technology, supporting simultaneous connections on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands. 802.11ac offers backward compatibility to 802.11b/g/n and bandwidth rated up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band plus up to 450 Mbps on 2.4 GHz.
