Google is Planning to Test New 6GHz Network Across the US


INTRO: While 5G for mobile remains is in its early stages and gradually rolling call at countries, Google has been reportedly performing on improving our Wi-Fi with a replacement 6Ghz network. According to recent FCC filings, Google is getting to test out the new high-speed internet network in multiple states across the US for a period of 24 months.

We all know by now that Google may be a company that always tries to be before its time. So, to bring faster internet speeds to consumers, Google is fixing an attempt for the new 6Ghz network in several states like Colorado, Florida, Arizona, Illinois, Kansas, New York, California, and more.

The initial approach is to “conduct radio experiments in and near the 6GHz bands (5650 MHz – 7125 MHz)” installed in a number of the cities of the above states. Although the corporate is getting to test out the network in just two or three cities in most of the states, it plans to trial the network in around seven cities in its home state of California including l. a. and San Francisco.

“Google proposes to conduct experimental propagation testing within the 6GHz band to supply technical information relevant to the utility of those frequencies for providing reliable broadband connections,” the Mountain View-based tech giant wrote about the topic.

This new network will reportedly double up the present Wi-Fi speeds and deliver more reliable connections than current-gen networks. However, don’t expect to invade the market directly. The company is just starting to work on the said technology. So, it’s requested the United States government to grant permission to hold out the trials for twenty-four months.
