It also emphasises the significance of obtaining additional bands for commercial 6G installations, as 5G networks will still be functioning at the time. Within the 7-24 GHz range, the mid-band is a potential for increased data speeds and good coverage. The 92–300 GHz sub-terahertz (sub-THz) band is being studied for support of ultra-high speed data rates. Another approach to get all the spectrum needed for 6G is to refarm current bands utilised for 3G, 4G, and 5G networks to 6G operation, according to the white paper. It also emphasises the importance of doing research on forward-thinking spectrum rules and technology in order to provide effective and flexible support for 6G and other services with the limited spectrum available.
During his speech, Sebastian Seung, president and head of Samsung Research, said, "We envision that 6G will allow ultimate experiences for humans and everything through the next level of hyper-connectivity."
While 5G communication networks are still being marketed throughout the world, with users constantly complaining about quality and speed, Seung told Yonhap news agency that it was time to start preparing for 6G.
"As with previous generations, shaping 6G will take several years and will entail a great deal of debate and collaboration among industry and academic actors," he added.
