Unlimited data collection from 5G is probably the least of our problems.
With 4G being close to reaching the limit of providing us what we expect in communication, 5G will be operational by 2020 in Australia. And 5G, which stands for “5th generation mobile“, promises to offer higher connection speeds, and connect us to everything.
I have always thought 5G was just an “upgrade” of what we have now. But not so. It seems that 5G is much more — as the network will be using HIGHER frequency bands — allegedly untested frequencies between 24 to 100 GHz.
We are told that 5G’s higher connection speeds will be possible, thanks to: improved technologies, increased allocations of radio spectrum, and by using many more antenna sites. This simple 6 minute video explains 5G technology: the increased number of ‘towers’ (small cell networks), MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output), and beaming. Basically it looks great for business. But what is the downside?
Problems for Our Health?
Some months ago I posted an article “Humanity In Crisis, Part 9: Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR).” I linked to a study done on birds at Mount Nardi, in NSW, Australia. The botanist, Mark Broomhall, studied the exodus of birds as the cell tower there was upgraded.
“In the year 2009, enhanced 3G technology was installed and a further 150 pay television channels were added to the tower… I witnessed the exodus of 27 bird species… [then] I witnessed the rapid exodus of a further 49 bird species [after the ‘4G’ upgrade in 2012 and early 2013].”
He estimated “70 to 90% of the wildlife has become rare or has disappeared from the Nightcap National Park within a 2-3 km radius of the Mt. Nardi tower complex”.
As 5G comes in, one thing for sure — we are going to add to the radiation soup that we already exist in. We’re going to be bombarded by really high frequencies at low, short-range intensities. So what dangers lie ahead? As they race to get ahead, government and corporations don’t want to hear about possible health risks. 4 days ago, in a media release from Telstra announced:
“Telstra today opened a 5G Innovation Centre at its Southport Exchange on the Gold Coast… to ensure Australia is among the first countries in the world to gain access to 5G… Telstra has already conducted Australia’s first 5G field trial and the world’s first 5G outdoor data call over 26GHz ‘mmWave’ radiofrequency spectrum… [Chief Operations Officer, Robyn Denholm, said] ‘we will be completing a number of 5G firsts in 2018 to ensure Australia remains at the forefront of mobile technology’.”
“…those who raise their voices against the danger to our health and our human rights to safety have been the subject of harassment, intimidation and attempts to silence them.“
This is what Tom Wheeler, FCC Chairman, had to say:
“Stay out of the way of technological development.”
