5G is barely in every country, but the telecommunications industry continues in the search for advances and already prepares the 6G. Apple, Google and LG have joined the Next G Alliance, a group that aims to lead the development of the sixth generation with American dominance.
Facebook, Nokia and Qualcomm participate in the creation of 6G
In addition to Apple, Google and LG, Next G Alliance has several members as carriers from the United States (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and US Cellular) and Canada (Bell and Telus), as well as companies such as Facebook, Samsung, Microsoft, Nokia, Qualcomm, Ericsson, Ciena, Telbyx, Interdigital and JMA Wireless.
The group wants to set the priorities of 6G and the next generations of mobile telephony with U.S. targeting and influences, even with participants from other continents – LG and Samsung are Korean, while Nokia, for example, is Finnish (We are not talking here about HMD Global, which licenses the Nokia brand for their mobile phones).
The fight over 6G’s dominance makes sense: the United States maintains a conflict with China over Huawei’s presence in the world, and accuses the spy company for the Chinese Communist Party without presenting evidence. This has generated a number of restrictions on suppliers in several countries around the world.
South Korea already plans its first 6G tests for 2026. The researchers expect the mobile network to use frequencies in the terahertz house, with the potential for speed of up to 1 terabit per second that will be used in smart cities, remote surgeries, holograms and automated factories.
