China Goes 6G Even As The World Is Debating 5G

China Goes 6G Even As The World Is Debating 5G

China – the upcoming ruler of the new world order. Yes, “the world’s first 6G satellite” record belongs to China.

China has successfully launched what has been described as “the world’s first 6G satellite” into space to test the technology.

It went into orbit along with 12 other satellites from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in the Shanxi Province.

The telecoms industry is still several years away from agreeing on 6G’s specifications, so it is not yet certain the tech being trialled will make it into the final standard.

It involves use of high-frequency terahertz waves to achieve data-transmission speeds many times faster than 5G is likely to be capable of.

The satellite also carries technology which will be used for crop disaster monitoring and forest fire prevention.

  1. It’s all right. Information overload could be the next deadly virus few years from now, except we increase a day to 40 hours and then reprogramme the body to withstand the additional 16 hours.

    So much to process in 24 hours, no longer enough…
