China Telecom and ZTE are already working on 6G technology
6G is still a vague term without any standards to define it, but two Chinese companies are working together to change that
At the second 6G Wireless Summit in March, ZTE’s director of 6G research Fang Min said that the new network standard should see research start within the next three years and be commercialized by 2030. And in a hint of what 6G standards could look like, she added that the network should be able to support a peak data rate of 1 terabit per second, with user data rates of 20 gigabits per second. By comparison, 5G on the millimeter wave spectrum currently delivers download speeds of 1 to 3 gigabits per second.
