5G Networks is a mobile technology that is being rolled out in major cities and soon to a utility pole near you. Set to replace 3G and 4G networks which operate on lower frequencies, the 5G network will operate on much higher frequencies. Because 5G is not very good at communication through objects such as trees and buildings, it’s success will depend on a highly saturated deployment of millimeter wavelengths. The good news is that 5G will be about 100 times faster than the current broadband.

However, there is much opposition to 5G Networks. According to activist Josh Del Sol of Natural Health more than 200 cities are now officially opposed to 5G. Medical and privacy issues are cited. According to Del Sol, we are already being bombarded with microwave radiation saturated frequencies. This is not to be mistaken for radioactive sources. Many jurisdictions such as Belgium, New Hampshire and Mill Valley in the US have expressed concern about potential health risks. Brain cancer, reduced fertility, headaches, and other illnesses have been cited.

The Good: 5G will facilitate the proliferation of driver-less cars and other modern innovations and countless other benefits. It will offer lightning fast data transfer speeds. The Bad: Health and privacy threats need to be further investigated.
