This is a question with a very complex answer. What one must first note is that the factor with the highest impact on services is interference. This is affected by whether a link is run on licensed or unlicensed band, i.e. regulated by ICASA or not and of course links in the surrounding area, then the question of weather can be answered. The higher the GHz the higher the impact. Atmospheric conditions start to impact, if at all, spectrums at 7GHz and higher. On the contrary to this, your licensed spectrums tend to be a higher frequency but tend to provide you with carrier-grade technology with built in adaptive modulation to specifically combat issues such as weather. Again, the most relevant factor remains interference.
