Naah, on wifi, for an AP to radiate signals, it needs to reserve a channel first, 2.4ghz has only 3 separate channels, where as 5ghz has around 30something, if not even more.
Now a single channel, is 20mhz, thats the band-width it uses in the WiFi signal to send and receive, new technology offers bonding two channels together, so it's 20 + 20 hz, meaning more band-width to transmit data, therefore more throughput (dont mix band-width with bandwidth, the one with the dash is literary in its meaning and is more physics)
The Tab 3 has (maybe) two antennas inside, meaning it can have two signals to the router, featuring a more robust signal, which does not necessarily increase bandwidth, but it increases the reliability of the bandwidth.
