Chinese researchers have claimed that they have achieved a record 6G speed by transmitting 1 terabyte of data over 1 kilometre in just one second, a media report said.    

A team led by Professor Zhang Chao of Tsinghua University’s School of Aerospace Engineering has achieved this milestone, the South China Morning Post reported.   

Deng Xijun, Chinese Ambassador to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations tweeted a video with a caption “China sets #6G speed world record, 10 to 20 times faster than #5G.”

“The experimental wireless communication line, set up in the Beijing Winter Olympics compound last month, could stream more than 10,000 high-definition live video feeds simultaneously,” the team led by Professor Zhang Chao shared in a statement 10 February.  

The report has also claimed that the researchers managed to achieve this record-breaking feat by utilising very ‘high-frequency radio waves’ known as ‘vortex millimeter waves’. They have also affirmed that they have managed to overcome some of the ‘blackout issues’ that occur at speeds of five times the speed of sound or faster hypersonic weapon could communicate and locate targets using 6G technology.
