When people in India just got a hold of 4G a few years back, and are waiting for 5G to come, China has already started working on 6G. The mobile companies like Xiaomi, Oppo, One Plus, Motorola, Samsung, and Huawei have already planned to launch their 5G handsets next year but with the reports coming we would only be able to use it in the year 2020. What makes China so ahead of us in technology is that when many of the Indians don’t even know what 5G is, China is so ahead with the planning and execution of the 6G. We are not even thinking to build it, we are just waiting for them to come up with it and then have it for ourselves.
3G, the third generation of wireless mobile telecommunications technology gave a speed of 2 mbps, 4G gave 100 mbps, 5G gives more than 1 gbps and 6G will give an unbelievable speed of up to 1 terabyte per second. With 6G you can download 4K movies in a second, and the virtual reality applications would have lot more scope than before. China is ready to do the trials of the more secured, and ultra-fast 6G by early 2020. We are expecting 6G to come to the users by 2030.
Coming to India, the Telecom Secretary Aruna Sundararajan said “Trai has given a preliminary set of recommendations, which the working committee at the Department of Telecommunications is looking at. We expect to complete due procedure by then (July-August 2019). I cannot say whether it (spectrum auction) will happen by then, but we will be ready post-second half of 2020. When we say 2020, it doesn’t mean the whole country will have 5G but it will start. Field trials are going on”
