From Mid Bands to THz, the Candidate 6G Spectrum Ranges in the US

September 6, 2023

Written by Caio Castro

At the beginning of the 6G spectrum conversation, several research papers pointed to higher frequencies, such as Terahertz, as the leading candidates for the next generation of mobile internet.

While this range is still believed to unlock the full potential of 6G, the view on spectrum possibilities has changed.

Examples are abundant: British regulator Ofcom, for instance, is looking at centimetre waves. Ericsson broke down potential use cases by range at MWC 23. Most recently, the North American initiative Next G Alliance published a thorough assessment of 6G spectrum candidates.

The report digs into 21 frequency ranges spanning from 1.3 GHz through 275 GHz and above and the challenges each poses. The document includes updates on activities worldwide to explore the potential that every band has to enable 6G.

6GWorld compiled the breakdown into one infographic. Select the desired range and learn Next G Alliance’s assessment of that band.
