    Its the difference between a single or a double garage door, nothing to do with speed.

    Hello from the country developing 6G. Yes, Im not from China
    We are just about getting 5G to go in major cities *(major city here is couple hunder thousand)
    5G is very fast but short range. So the infrastucture is wayyy differend from 4G. There has to be a base station on nearly every street light post.
    I dont know how 6G is supposed to work with ever decreasing ranges.

    It's called technology. 6G is inevitable. Maybe near, maybe far. Looking ahead is not a bad thing. I guess you have ancestors who resented talk of the moonshot.

    Talking out one's arse, indeed.
    Yeah he may as well have said the U.S should be adopting flying cars because those will exist sometime in the future too. You can't adopt what doesn't yet exist and even that link you posted estimates 2030 for 6G so yes once again Trump is talking out of his ass. Just accept that Trump knows as much about cell technology as any 70 year old grandpa would know.

    Asa noted earlier... 'G' is the generation of technology...
    Cell phones started out as AM on low frequency analog bands... not many phone calls could happen at the same time...
    Along the way, 2G, then 3G, then 4GLTE (not sure why the LTE was on there... it is another set of tech standards)...
    Anyhow, each new generation brought more development...
    Like FM bands, higher frequency bands, digital, etc...

    5G... is literally a microwave... that means the actual radio wave is like a MM or 2 tall compare this to the radio wave of the old fashioned CB radios was something like 20-something tall)... some say this is not good for your body... lots of politics and special interests on both sides of this discussion... as there is a LOT of $$$ riding on 5G.

    Long story short...
    5G will have something like a 6" cube with a 2" antenna on top of it... at the top of each utility pole and/or streetlight pole. No more wire from the pole to the house... your internet will run on radio waves from your computer, phone, tablet, TV, etc...

    5G speeds, depending on who you listen to... are 'Gig' speeds... not 'Meg' speeds...
    This allows for 'real latency'... which means if I say 'go' and you say 'stop' at exactly the same time... we will both hear it at exactly the same time... even if I am in the USA and you are in China.
    Yes, that fast!

    Think with me... if the 'round trip' signal is that fast... a sensor in a driverless car could sense a problem in the street, call home, the master computer could give instructions as to what to do, the instructions could get back to the car, and the car do it...
    Literally FASTER...
    Than a human driver could react!

    Consider the potential of that 'instant' round trip response.

    Yeah... we are getting closer and closer to some stuff we read about in Science Fiction books back when...
    ... or is that

    Well, once again someone is. No one can say what technology will do, and leaps can and do happen. 6G may come in two years or get left in the dust by some new discovery. That's the beauty of the age of advancing technology. No one said Trump knows cell technology, but surely he knows more about business and looking ahead than a simple non-citizen such as yourself?

    But really, your post isn't about what Trump knows or doesn't know, is it? Isn't it really just another opportunity for you to 'scream at the sky'?

    Sci-Fi has often led the way. One must first have a vision.

    One of the things folks that do not like Trump might ought to consider...
    Wealthy and/or connected folks... by the nature of their lifestyles...
    Hear about things LONG before us working stiffs do...
    It is just the nature of how things go.

    Trump is a motivator...
    He may not know the tech details of 6G...
    However he does know that 6G is better than 5G...
    And he knows that which ever country develops the hardware first and sells it all over the world...
    Has a definite advantage!
    And being an 'America First' guy...
    He wants that advantage to be with the USA...
    NOT somewhere else.
    Now is that really that hard to grasp or understand???

    IMO what Trump is doing... is encouraging tech giants to 'get busy' and catch up... better yet... get out front!

    Again... is that really hard to understand???

    Personal opinion...
    Remember the story a while back... about how most of the computer mother boards from China for years and years... had an itty bitty chip in them... that called home now and then???
    Spyware if you will...

    Anyhow... why would we want to use Chinese 5G hardware...
    Given China has a track record of deceitful spyware???
    Why not 'encourage' USA folks to make the hardware???

    Or it it just not cool to be a leader anymore...
    Is it more cool to be a follower and be screwed over by the leaders???

    Exactly. Sadly, unlikely.

    The speed how fast something gets to you, has nothing to do with the speed of transport. A supplier of products only has so much sending power. When there are lots of persons getting stuff, the supplier has to limit how fast it can be send.

    Unless the supplier adds more capacity.

    Remember when dial-up was as good as it gets...
    Then ADSL came along...
    Then Cable...
    Then fiber...
    Each has the ability to move MORE data!

    5G or 6G... whichever we get...
    Depending on who you read...
    Could well be 100 times faster than the average home cable or ADSL connection...
    YES, that was not a typo...
    100 TIMES FASTER!

    The president doesn't need to know everything he needs to know who does. Too bad Obama didn't know the right people. This thread wasn't meant to bash anyone. I ask a question because I had no idea what the 5G and 6G technology was. I don't really need to know but want to know. Thanks for the info guys and keep it coming.

    Yes Trump this and Trump that.

    Yet he cannot swing a magic wand and make ammurica invent something great.
    It is the hard work of small nations that has made the difference regarging these things. Its sad, so sad. Buahahaaaa

    Yes...
    When the govt drains off the investment R&D $$$... for social programs...
    It is hard for that country to innovate.
    Now if Trump can get the govt off the backs of business... and business chooses to innovate...
    Well the USA has a track record of leaping waaay out front...
    Lets see if we can make it happen again...
