South Korea approves the 6GHz band for unlicensed use
 Following a public consultation earlier in the year, South Korea's Ministry of Science and ICT has announced on 15th October 2020 that it has approved 1.2GHz of spectrum in the 6GHz band for unlicensed use. 

The decision makes the whole 6GHz band (5925MHz- 7125MHz) available for indoor use only with a maximum power output of 25mW. For device-to-device connections like tethering, 5925MHz-6455MHz will also be made available for use both indoors and outdoors. 

In the ministry's own testing, it demonstrated that 6GHz Wi-Fi could reach speeds of 2.1Gbps, which is five times faster than the currently available Wi-Fi speed of around 400 to 600Mbps. South Korea follows the United States and Russia in formally releasing spectrum for the 6GHz band.

For a copy of the announcement, please get in touch.
