Brands muttered 5G all over 2019 and now in 2020 the word is definitely looking like the theme of the year. While full deployment of 5G is nowhere near complete across the globe, apprently 6G tech is already in the works in China.
6G in China
Working on what theoretically would be 8000 times faster than current 5G speeds, the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology recently started work on the futuriristic network.
China has apprently set up two working groups to oversee the 6G research. The first group comprises several executives from the sector ministries and their role is primarily to support the second group. The latter consists of upt to 37 expterts from institutes and technology companies who are purely there for the technical research.
How fast will 6G be?
As of right now, theoretical speeds of 6G will be uptp 1TB/s. Simply speaking you would be able to download 40-50 4K movies on your device in one second.
When can we expect to see 6G?
Now all this is theoretical and years away from reaching our consumer devices. For example, the current 5G network we are begining to see on your smartphones has been in the works since 2008.
