500 Times Faster Than Average 5G Smartphones Is New 6G Wireless Technology

When compared to the average 5G smartphone, the new 6G wireless technology is 500 times faster.


Fifth-generation, or ‘5G’, connection for cellular technology has only been the standard for networks for around five years. However, with 6G already on the horizon, developers are searching for methods to make the most of the expanding bandwidth that the following generation will provide.

A demonstration of technology that was conducted out in Japan demonstrated that a prototype wireless device was capable of achieving data transfer speeds of 100 Gbps. This is ten times faster than the peak speeds of 5Gand it is five hundred times faster than the average speed of a 5G smartphone.

The size of a Netflix movie that is two hours long and of medium quality that is streamed to a phone is around 1.5 gigabytes, which means that in terms of practicality, we are looking at the possibility of shifting eight or nine of these films every single second.

The device, which is the result of extensive research and development by the Japanese telecommunications company NTT, the Japanese mobile phone operator DOCOMO, and the electronics corporations NEC and Fujitsu, makes use of high-frequency bands in the range of 100 GHz and 300 GHz. This enables it to pack in a significantly greater amount of data than the standards of the previous generation.

Even though it is still in the process of being developed and has a present trade-off in terms of range, the experiment demonstrated a steady connection at a distance of 100 meters (328 ft). As the 6G network is finally built out, advancements in communications technology will in reality require various types of transmitters and receivers. Because a significant portion of the network will rely on innovations such as theseit will be needed.

When we talk about hardware, it is important to point out that this demonstration needed a significant amount of cutting-edge apparatus. It is expected that the size of the equipment, as well as the expenses associated with it, will continuously decrease as the technology continues to advance.

In addition, it is essential to keep in mind that the maximum speed of 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) for 5G is a technological ceiling, provided that the most powerful and well-optimized technology is utilized without any limitations. Opensignal reports that the average 5G speed for smartphones on T-Mobile in the United States is presently 186.3 Mbps. T-Mobile is the top carrier in the country when it comes to 5G speeds.

Or, to put it another way, 6G promises to significantly enhance speedsAccording to the researchers, this will turn out to be beneficial in a wide variety of applications, ranging from the downloading of high-resolution movies to the communication between autonomous cars.

In the same way that 5G will undergo a leap ahead in terms of bandwidth, or network capacity, there will also be an increase in the number of devices that can remain connected at the same time. You are likely aware of the phenomenon of network congestion if you have ever experienced it for the first time at a crowded concert or sporting event. This is something that 6G technology should almost completely eradicate.

It is possible that under some circumstances, 6G may render Wi-Fi essentially obsolete, which is something that has already begun to occur with 5G. There may be no requirement to physically extend a wire up to the front entrance of your house or place of business.

If we take a broader perspective, we may see a large number of additional devices coming online at faster speeds, packed with an increased number of components and sensors that can communicate with the internet (and with one another). Based on Nokia’s estimates, the commercial availability of 6G might occur by the year 2030.

In the meantime, we will have to make do with the ‘new’ 5G networks, which currently appear to be virtually lethargic in comparison to what is going to be available in the future.
