It may feel like 5G only just arrived, but 6G is already on the horizon. Engineers at LG Electronics and the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) have now tripled the distance record for data transmission over 6G, reaching a new milestone for practical urban coverage.

While 5G and earlier technologies use frequencies below 100 GHz, 6G will expand beyond that into the currently unused terahertz (THz) spectrum. This brings with it advantages like data rates that are up to 50 times faster than 5G, and latency that’s just 10% that of 5G. On the path to rolling out this technology, researchers at LG and HHI have now set a new distance record for data transmission over 6G. At frequencies between 155 and 175 GHz, the team transmitted data over 320 m (1,050 ft) outdoors. That’s more than three times farther than the previous record, which the team set a year ago.
