China pushes forward on 6G, while US still working on 5G

China is barreling ahead on ultrafast wireless technology, quietly hurtling the world’s first 6G test satellite into space while the US is still rolling out 5G at a snail’s pace.

The satellite, called Star Era-12, has frequency bands so high that they have to be tested in space so the signals won’t be lost as easily as in air, the National Science Foundation’s Thyagarajan Nandagopal explained to The Post.

Exactly how fast the bands are isn’t known, but Nandagopal estimates a range of 100 and 500 Gigahertz, or Ghz — 100 times faster than 5G. To understand that speed, compare 5G and 4G cellphones: A 5G model is 100 times faster than a 4G, depending on the carrier.

What 6G will touch covers everything from communications to telemedicine to national security, according to Professor Tommaso Melodia, who heads Northeastern University’s Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things. And along with

Undaunted, US global media chief plows ahead with changes

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite a barrage of criticism from both Democrats and Republicans, the new chief of U.S. global media is plowing ahead with changes to the Voice of America and other international broadcasters that are heightening concerns about their future as independent news organizations.

Although Agency for Global Media chief executive Michael Pack has assured Congress that VOA and its sister networks will remain independent and pledged he would consult lawmakers on significant developments, last week he initiated personnel changes and began a review of visas for foreign employees.

Some fear the moves will damage the institution’s credibility and its ability to fulfill its congressionally mandated mission to broadcast impartial news around the world by turning the operation into a propaganda machine for President Donald Trump. Others, though, see them as important and long-needed reforms.

Pack on Wednesday fired the executive editor of Radio Free Asia, Bay Fang, whom
