Apparently Blackburn is one of the first places in the country to have 6G internet http://bit.ly/1sdpFCI

A few days back they installed a 6G transmitter on top of a tall chimney in Darwen http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/ne ... d_problem/

Having looked at the 6G website there are no prices on the site which immediately makes me suspicious of them :roll:

I was intending to upgrade to BT Infinity but they keep moving the date when it's supposed to be available in my area ::b

To be fair this whole 6G thing looks like a con, I think I'll wait for the Infinity :wink:

Looks and sounds good.

Pity they don't give a coverage map on their site.

It seems a modern version of Ionica, but sadly we all know how that ended up :roll:

I had to look Ionica up. If any one else does not know, Click here

I can't help but think that 6g is just a name, not the one up in the "G series" thereby conning people into thinking it IS the next one up in the "G series"

What happened to '5'???

Warning - techno-speak alert.....

The increasing speeds for downloads necessitates increased bandwidths (there's only so much you can achieve using compression algorithms) and the bandwidth requirement necessitates an increase in frequency.

The mobile phone operating frequency has gone from 27MHz (cordless phones) to 450MHz, 900MHz and now 1800MHz - they are now into the realms of microwaves and subsequent increases in data-rates means ever higher frequencies.

Now, as frequencies rise, so do the effects of absorption (buildings and, in the case of microwave frequencies, water vapour i.e. the atmosphere) so you can get an increase in bandwidth/data-rates but at the expense of range due to attenuation. So yes, we'll get high data rates/downloads via 4G/5G/6G etc etc but this will be restricted to population-centric areas for the obvious financial reasons and, even then, we're talking about major city centres, not exactly suburbs where you live.

So, downloading/viewing movies at blinding speed is ok if you plan to do it in your working lunch hour but for everyday high speed downloads there is a practical limit that only city-based people will ever see.

Exactly, even more reason to suspect that "6g" is just a trading / company name

in theory it can be done just by using multiple 3/4g channel frequency's without the need to widened the band/channel allocation all the packet handling and shaping can be handled by firmware/software

3g+3g =6G

Its just like having 2 Adsl lines fed into a router

Hi,

Here is a landing page with our new 6G internet offer "Upto 100Mb only £17.99 per month" and includes line rental or you can have without any line rental (thus saving on an expensive BT landline £15.99 pm)



Hope this helps, we are a geniune company and our website is only a "teaser" website, in a few months we will have a better website with prices and coverage maps etc..

6G Internet - Technology - From Wikipedia:
6G uses air fibre, delivered through the air that allows to receive broadband connections similar to radio technology. It is a combination of radio frequencies and standards to deliver service to end users in through their radio distribution and access network. At the access layer they use the 5.8 GHz Band C light licensed frequency and use a combination of 802.11n and 802.11ac standards to deliver services to end users.[4] The radio technology is supported by fibre network that transmits high speed internet regardless of your distance from the exchange.[5]

Regards

6G Internet

Some more info about our 6G "Air Fibre" Network:

" We have a national fibre network that is lit with DWDM that serves our national distribution nodes.

Completely resilient core network with a national figure of eight topology supplying fully resilient optical paths. We lease dark fibre nationally from various tier 1 carriers to create the figure of eight topology. "

If any of your members in the Blackburn, Preston, Darwen, Nelson and Burnley areas want to use our services then I am sure we can come up with some special discount.

Understood, but your website admin instigated the request of a 6G website page that had 6G air fibre prices on it in the original post which is very difficult to answer if I cant post a URL.

I don't make the rules. I merely enforce them. If one of our regular members had posted a link to the site it wouldn't be a problem.

I'm sure that the site owner will be in touch with you regards your offer of a discount/deal and He may well see fit to link to your site. :thumbleft:
