Beyond 5G networks require low latency, high throughput and high data rates while maintaining appreciable coverage. To achieve this, a wider bandwidth is required. Terahertz (THz) band can provide such large bandwidth, however, it is not as reliable as the sub 6 GHz band due to absorption effects. Hence, we need infrastructure level approaches such as heterogeneous networks (HetNet) that provide backwards compatibility to increase coverage and reliability. In this paper, we consider a HetNet comprised of small base stations at THz and mmWave frequencies, and macro base station at sub-6 GHz frequency at different building densities based on multiple cities around the world. For quality of service (QoS) performance metrics, we take data rate coverage and power efficiency. Different system parameters are varied for six different locations to analyze the effectiveness of the proposed HetNet. Our results show that B5G networks are considerably more effective in environments with low building densities.
