Hypocrisy Not Democracy: The Telecom Industry (“Big Wireless”), The FCC, and Elected Officials Force Small Cell Towers in Front of Homes and Everywhere Else.

By B.N. Frank

No matter what “Big Wireless” and their supporters say – we don’t need 5G technology, The Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), and Automated Everything installed all over the country.

According to countless security experts, IoT has already has a 75% failure rate and puts us all at risk for more cybersecurity issues which could lead to catastrophic results.

According to doctors, scientists, and environmentalists, ALL wireless infrastructure – including 5G  – produces harmful radiation which puts the whole planet and everyone and everything on it at risk.  Dr. Naomi Wolf is already posting online about new health issues being reported by residents in New York City due to 5G.  Pets are suffering, too.

A.I. and various sources of automated technology are already taking jobs, causing accidents, fires and explosions, health problems, and more.  Tech moguls and others who can afford it are already planning for “Doomsday.”

All things considered, none of this is good for anyone but “Big Wireless.”

None of that matters to “Big Wireless.”  They continue to pressure the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to remove all municipal government ability to stop 4G and 5G wireless infrastructure and its associated applications from being installed in communities across the U.S:

The United States Federal Communications Commission is still being urged to remove more small cell red tape for 5G’s sake, with all four national carriers in the country recently increasing their efforts to lobby in favor of such interventions. Verizon is the latest telecom giant to appeal with the regulator over the matter, having done so via a late June filing in which it complained about “exorbitant fees” certain municipalities demand for small cell installation projects despite the fact that such infrastructure is usually tacked on existing hardware and has a minimal physical footprint.

Sprint made similar complaints in recent months, together with AT&T and T-Mobile. Verizon’s latest appeal specifically referenced small cell attachment fees that often surpass $4,000 per year, describing such expenses as a major roadblock to timely deployment of the fifth generation of mobile networks. While the carriers previously attempted appealing with municipalities directly, they rarely even received responses to their complaints, as per their own claims. Verizon had such issues with a number of cities in Florida over the first half of the year, the network operator wrote in its latest filing with the FCC. The telecom regulator previously pledged to do more to remove small cell red tape and accelerate 5G buildout efforts moving forward but its policy has yet to amount to a concrete large-scale strategy.


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to be protecting us from “Big Wireless.”  Nope.

Instead, Chairman Ajit Pai as well as FCC members Michael O’Rielly and Brendan Carr have completely sold out.

Many state and federal elected officials and community leaders are also trying to force this technology on communities also.

Recently Verizon Chairman and CEO, Lowell McAdam, gave an interview on CNBC where he discussed 5G and how it will be a “very disruptive technology.”  You can say that again.

Samsung will be selling indoor 5G routers soon for anyone who wants to use it in their homes or businesses.

“Big Wireless” doesn’t care.  They still are forcing us to accept harmful technology that many of us are fighting to stop in our communities.  That’s not democracy.
