OREANDA-NEWSThe Japanese government on Tuesday decided to begin preparations for the introduction of the sixth generation (6G) communications system in the country, which is planned for approximately 2030. To this end, a council of experts is being created consisting of technical specialists, representatives of private business and relevant departments, called by the summer to develop a comprehensive strategy for the transition to a new format, the Japanese television channel reports.

The fifth-generation (5G) communications system will be mass introduced in Japan this spring. In their use, the country lagged behind the USA and South Korea, where the use of 5G has already begun.
