Trump Calls For “6G,” Which Doesn’t Exist

We’d like to put out an open call: if you have any idea what 6G technology is, please contact us and fill us in.

We ask because U.S. President Donald Trump just tweeted that he wants “6G” cell service in the U.S. “as soon as possible” — even though we don’t even have 5G service yet and no one has started to meaningfully discuss 6G, according to The Verge.

Quick Primer

5G service is expected to be the next big thing for mobile communications and has long been slated for a 2020 rollout. When it finally goes live, it’s expected to improve cell service, mobile download speeds, and provide better support for the internet of things.

Recently, AT&T misleadingly claimed to have deployed a 5G network before quickly backing away from its own announcement. Meanwhile, there haven’t even been meaningful discussions of what a 6G network would look like.
