#BigTech / Google Asks FCC For OK To Test 6G Service

Google is asking the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for permission to hold radio experiments “in and near the 6 GHz band”…

It also said an aim of the test is to “potentially improve propagation models for incorporation in Automatic Frequency Coordination (AFC) systems to support unlicensed spectrum use in the 6 GHz band.”

The news comes as the rollout of 5G, a network that showcases download speeds reportedly 100 times quicker than 4G, may speed up even amid economic headwinds.
