China has officially started the research and development of 6G technology.
The news came less than a week after the country rolled out its super-fast 5G network.
The country's technology bureau has formally set up a team of experts to work on the next generation of mobile internet connections, state media said.
A total of 37 telecommunications specialists from universities, institutions and companies are members of the panel, whose task is to explain the development of 6G and to prove its scientific feasibility.
The country's Technology Bureau has formally set up a team of experts to work on the next-generation 6G mobile internet connection just a week after the launch of 5G
The news was announced Sunday during a 6G launch ceremony in Beijing, according to a report from Chinanews.com.
Wang Xi, vice-minister of the Technology Office, said during the conference that the office would collaborate with the experts to design a specific 6G research plan and conduct preliminary research.
The three telecom companies of China, China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, launched their 5G data plans last Thursday.
The country will activate more than 130,000 5G base stations by the end of this year to support the network, which is one of the largest 5G implementations in the world.
Chinese engineers already have a & # 39; 5G smart town & # 39; built near Shanghai, where residents can download TV series, films or games at an impressive speed of 1.7 GB per second.

5G signal is sent to the corners and holes of the 27 square kilometer city of Wuzhen by more than 140 channels, which have recently been put into use.
The country is also on its way to complete a 5G-equipped high-speed train station, in collaboration with Chinese tech giant Huawei.
The & # 39; super fast & # 39; 5G network will be installed at the existing Shanghai Hongqiao train station, one of the busiest traffic hubs in Asia and with around 60 million passengers a year.

According to Huawei, visitors to the station can download a HD movie of 2 GB in less than 20 seconds.
For comparison: it takes three minutes and 20 seconds to download the same movie on a standard 4G network.
WHAT IS 5G AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
The evolution of the G system began in 1980 with the invention of the mobile telephone with which analogue data could be sent via telephone conversations.
Digital came in 1991 with 2G and SMS and MMS capabilities were launched.
Since then, the possibilities and carrying capacity for the mobile network have increased enormously.
More data can be transferred from one point to another faster than ever via the mobile network.
The expectation is that 5G is up to 1000 times faster than the currently used 4G.
Although the jump from 3G to 4G was the most cost-effective for mobile browsing and working, the move to 5G will be so fast that they become almost real-time.
This means that mobile activities will be just as fast as office-based internet connections.
Potential use for 5g includes:
- Simultaneous translation of multiple languages into a party conference call
- Self-driving cars can stream movies, music and navigation information from the cloud
- A full 8 GB movie can be downloaded in six seconds.
5G is expected to be so fast and efficient that it is possible for the end of wired connections to begin.
By the end of 2020, it is estimated that 50 billion devices will be connected to 5G.
The evolution from 1G to 5G. The predicted speed of 5G is more than 1 Gbps – 1,000 times higher than the existing speed of 4G and could be implemented in laptops of the future
