Despite the deployment of the technology in the country last year, Nigeria is still not among the countries recognized for the use of the 5G network. This is according to a Statista report, as no city has been fully penetrated with the network. The network was supposed to have covered at least seven cities before the end of 2022, as stated by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC).
However, of the licensed telecommunication companies in 2022, only MTN has been able to roll out the network in some areas of Lagos State. China and the United States are significantly ahead of other nations in their 5G rollout, with a combined 652 cities where 5G is available. The Philippines is the closest country in terms of 5G rollout, with active connections in 98 cities. According to Statista data, China leads the countries with the largest number of cities where 5G is available in 2022 with 356 cities covered with 5G network, followed by the United States with 296 cities and the Philippines with 98 cities. Others in the top 10 include South Korea 85; Canada 84, Spain 71, Italy 65; Germany 58; UK 57; and Saudi Arabia 48. The research indicated that much of the world is still connected via 4G, while 5G rollout is underway.
However, for some in the telecommunications industry, 5G is already old news. While the main focus remains on 5G deployment, researchers and engineers behind the scenes are already looking towards 6G, the sixth-generation technology standard for mobile broadband networks. “To some, it may seem premature to prepare the successor to a technology that consumers barely have access to. However, for those who work in technology, it may seem like time is running out. “According to a Samsung white paper, a new standard takes an average of ten years to progress from the initial research phases to commercialization.
5G took just eight years. Samsung touted a potential rollout date of 2028 to 2030 for the technology, meaning work needs to start now to keep up with the pace of progress. “Faster data transfer speeds are one of the most obvious advantages that 6G will have over previous generations, thanks to the use of higher spectrum bands. In March 2019, the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) made experimental licenses available in the 95 gigahertz (GHz) to 3 terahertz (THz) range, well beyond the current spectrum open to 5G. “A step forward in the spectrum will enable peak 6G data speeds up to 50 times faster than the 5G standard. The data speed experienced by the user of 6G is expected to reach 1000 Mbps, ten times faster than the data speed experienced by the user of 5G. While higher band spectrum provides faster speeds, it also poses issues that need to be addressed, including difficulties penetrating walls and water.” 5G technology enables a connection density of 10⁶ devices per square kilometer (km²), which means that around one million devices can connect and transmit data within one km². 6G allows ten times the number of devices, with a connection density of 10⁷ devices, or ten million devices per km². This creates new possibilities for data-intensive applications on multiple endpoints.
