According to several recently disclosed FCC documents, Google plans to secretly test 6GHz networks in 17 states in the United States, business insider reported. But it’s not clear what Google wants to test. Clues include: Google hopes to conduct experiments on the 6GHz spectrum to “make full use of these bands to generate relevant technical information about utilization, so as to provide reliable broadband connection”. According to the documents, the tests will take 24 months and have been conducted in 26 towns in 17 states.

the 17 states include: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

there are not many other information disclosed in these documents. There are many possibilities for the 6GHz spectrum that Google may want. However, based on the statement of “reliable broadband connection”, Google may be testing some kind of home Internet service, which may be the next service provided by Google fiber, an optical fiber project.
