China's 6G satellite

Post by brian livesey »

China has launched a satellite that it claims will be far faster than 5G. The satellite uses high frequency terahertz waves, but the telecoms industry is some years away from agreeing on 6G's specifications, so whether this new development will make it into the final standard is uncertain.
A national 6G research and development group is in the process of being established by the Chinese government. The Trump administration has conflicted with China about security issues relating to ultra-fast mobile services. The new satellite will also monitor crops and forest fires.
