President Trump says he wants U.S. to develop 6G networks as soon as possible


You may not be a fan of the United States President Donald Trump, but you have to agree that he never becomes boring or previsible. Always that he gets a new idea on his mind he runs with it no matter the consequences or consistencies behind it. After lifting up the idea of creating the first Space Force to police the galaxy, the President now wants his homeland to develop 6G as soon as possible.

Trump used his Twitter to say that he wants 5G and even 6G in the United States as soon as possible, since it is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current 4G LTE standard. He endorses that American companies should step up their efforts now, or they will be left behind by the rest of the competition. The 5G network will slowly roll out in the U.S. this year and the first smartphone to arrive in the market with this technology will be the Galaxy S10 5G, which will be available this summer.

The download speed of the 5G network is expected to be 20 times faster than 4G LTE. The new faster speed will allow the creation of new services and businesses and will give more strength to existant segments like video streaming service. When it comes to 6G, despite some internal talks of the start of development of this new technology, there are no 6G standards for now, and it’s too soon to even talk about it. The United States President continued its speech by saying:

This post is interesting since the President is expected to soon sign an order that bans U.S. carriers from using network equipment manufactured by Chinese companies. Trump wants to see American companies developing and building their own network equipment in order to compete in the network equipment business. Currently, Huawei is the leader of the segment, being followed by Nokia, Ericsson, and ZTE. Despite the lack of basis behind some comments of the President, this isn’t a bad idea, after all, more competition will expand the offer for consumers, thus not allowing a monopoly or control over a new technology that will represent another important step for the future of the Mobile industry.
