China begins building 6G networks

In China, officially launched work aimed at creating telecommunications technologies of the sixth generation. This was reported by Reuters with reference to local state media.

Representatives of ministries and research institutes held a meeting to create a national 6G technology research and development group.

This happened just a few days after the three largest Chinese telecom operators announced the deployment of 5G mobile services across the country.

Countries around the world are striving to deploy next-generation wireless networks that can provide data speeds of at least 20 times higher than 4G, paving the way for new applications, including self-driving cars and augmented reality.

In recent months, technology associated with 5G networks has become the forefront of the conflict between the US and China. The US government blacklisted the Chinese company Huawei Technologies, the world’s largest provider of telecommunications equipment, blocking its access to US goods and services. In addition, under the pretext that Huawei equipment could supposedly be used for espionage, the United States tried to convince its allies to exclude the Chinese company from participating in the deployment of 5G networks.
