Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The world has barely started using 5G, the latest generation of wireless connectivity, but China is already looking ahead to 6G. While 5G is known to have data transmission speeds at least 10 times greater than 4G, rolled out in 2009, it's too early to say what 6G could be, or what sorts of technologies it would advance.

After all, we hardly know what life with 5G is going to be like yet. Chinese telecom carriers rolled out their commercial 5G plans only this month, with the cheapest option costing just under $20. China has also planned to activate over 130,000 5G base stations by the end of the year, helping it to build one of the largest 5G networks globally, an achievement the government prioritized (member exclusive). South Korea launched the service in April, and has also been at the forefront of developing 5G. The US, meanwhile, is playing catch up.

The lack of this tech will effect YOUR job, Mr.SysAdmin. 5G is all about supercharging cloud computing. 6G will be even more of that.

You really are an idiot BOAZ.

This is the end of your job IF America doesn't catch up.

But hey... nobody cares. It's just your job innit? LOL

Good the sooner countries strike out with their own technology the better.

Does China make you "sit!" before they give you your Snausages?

Yep since Jan 20, 2017.

I'm not getting a 3D printer because someone will come up with a 4D and make it obsolete. When it comes to Gs I'm going to wait until 11G comes out. Nothing goes higher than 11. With barrels two should be enough.
