Superhub 3 Wired Connection: 2.4ghz or 5ghz?

Quick question;

I know that the Superhub 3 can pump out 2.4ghz and 5ghz when devices are connected via wifi however, what happens when you have a device connected via an ethernet connection (like a PC or a games console) - does it automatically use the quicker 5ghz speed?

2.4Ghz & 5Ghz are wireless only bands, as Ethernet uses a cable it goes at the speed of the cable or the ports the cable is connected to (Usually 100Mbps or 1000Mbps) and is nothing to do with 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz.
