China has successfully launched the world’s first 6G satellite into space to test the technology.
It went into orbit along with 12 other satellites from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in the Shanxi Province.
High-speed technology will be trialled, which will be one of the core elements of sixth-generation communications.
The satellite also carries technology which will be used for crop disaster monitoring and forest fire prevention.
The satellite is meant to trial new technology expected to be 100 times faster than 5G.
