Here’s how the US can beat China in the race for dominance in next generation networks

November 26, 2019 / Stella Soon

While China has embraced next generation networks at a faster pace, experts say the U.S. still has some advantages in the competition for dominance. China rolled out its 5G networks nationwide on Nov. 1, with three of its state-owned carriers offering plans for the service. One week later, Beijing said it launched research and development efforts into 6G networks. 5G refers to mobile networks with super-fast data speeds that can support technologies like driverless cars. While 6G refers to the next generation of networks, 5G is still in its early stages as much of the world still operates on 4G networks.
