The Japanese government has decided to start preparations for the introduction of a sixth generation (6G) network, with the aim of launching this ultra-fast network in 2030.
To this end, an expert council has been set up comprising technical experts, representatives of private companies and relevant public institutions whose task is to create a complex strategy for the transition to the new format.
The fifth generation (5G) communication system will be widely used in Japan this spring.
In this regard, the country lags behind the US and South Korea, where the use of 5G has already begun.
Kyodo news agency says the government, in collaboration with the economy, wants to recover this backlog and take the lead in moving to an even faster and safer sixth-generation system.
