Another reason why 2.4 GHz can be problematic is the vast amount of consumer devices operating in this frequency range. I've seen cases where everything worked perfectly until the audience came in.
Anyway, if it works for you, great.
Don't know how things are where you live, but here in the UK mobile devices on 4G only use 800MHz, 1.4GHz, 1.8GHz, 2.3GHz and 2.6GHz bands. It's only wi-fi routers which may use 2.4Ghz but routers at venues nowadays are always set to 5Ghz deliberately to avoid wireless interference so that's probably why I've never had any issues gigging in the UK.
