Advantages of 1800MHz GSM

What are the advantages/disadvantages of 1800MHz frequency over 900MHz used by GSM?

The 1800MHz version is a newer, lower power GSM standard. It?s better suited for densely populated areas since it can handle a greater network load, however, it is more costly to setup (roughly 1.5 times the investment of a 900mhz network).
