On January 19, aiming at the next-generation communication technology after 5G, development competition in various countries has begun. According to the Nikkei News Report, Japan plans cooperation to formulate a comprehensive strategy for 6G technology by 2030. It seems that it will achieve communication speeds that are 10 times faster than 5G.

China, South Korea, and Finland have also started research, development, and investment for 6G technology. If you have patents related to communication standards, you can make huge profits through the sale of equipment and software. Japan, which is slowing down in 5G development, strives to succeed in 6G technology.
Using 6G technology high-speed communication technology, it is possible to depict a future society. Thus individual stereoscopic images emerge from conference rooms or classrooms far away, and robots take care of people. Due to the instant transmission of large amounts of data, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications believes that the speed of 6G technology must be at least 10 times faster than 5G. This technology is suitable for transmitting large amounts of data, and unused high-frequency radio waves will also be used for communication.
In order to achieve 6G technology around 2030, countries have begun to take action. In November 2019, the Chinese government announced that it will establish two 6G R & D institutions. Finnish universities and government-affiliated institutions have also launched 6G R & D projects. In South Korea, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics each set up research centers in 2019.
Talking about 5G, the United States and South Korea have already put it into commercial use since April 2019. In Japan, large telecommunications operators such as NTT Docomo will launch 5G services in turn from spring 2020. 5G will become popular in the future, but countries have targeted the next 6G technology after 5G.
