Research has already determined that exposure to all sources of cell phone and wireless radiation is harmful. There is still no scientifically determined “safe” level of exposure for children or pregnant women and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and other experts warn that kids are more vulnerable than adults. Animals are affected by it too. Telecom companies have also been warning investors that eventually they may be held liable and have to pay large settlements because of their products and transmitters (aka cell towers).
Verizon has launched an ambitious project to build out a network of small cell nodes in New Jersey that will further improve its first-in-class wireless service.
With demand for wireless coverage continuing to increase every year, the small cell network nodes will add capacity for data-hungry services, such as video streaming, social media, the Internet of Things (IoT), GPS and public safety.
The small cell network nodes work in conjunction with Verizon’s existing wireless and fiber network and are located near street level where they can serve high-traffic areas in densely-populated city neighborhoods, busy tourist attractions, restaurants, cafes and outdoor recreation facilities.
Verizon has already started installing the small cells in Newark and Jersey City, as well as in numerous shore communities.
Small cell network nodes are small and barely noticeable. A typical installation consists of small radios and antennas, two or three feet long, placed on existing and new utility poles, street lights, signs and signal light poles.
The locations and structures are carefully selected to create an ideal network of coverage, improving wireless service. In certain circumstances, Verizon is working with electric utilities to upgrade existing street lights, and to replace them with new street light fixtures that can accommodate the radio equipment in the base of the structure, and the antennas in a dome on top of the structure.
Small cell network nodes work with – but are not a replacement for – the macro antennas typically housed on towers and rooftops of tall buildings.

The Telecom Industry has admitted they have no scientific evidence that exposure to 5G is biologically or environmentally safe and many researchers say it isn’t(see 1, 2, 3). Meteorologists, NASA, NOAA, the U.S. Navy, security experts, and utility companies have also issued warnings about installing 5G for other legitimate and scary reasons. Recently, engineers started warning about 5G base stations overheating. Even where Verizon has already installed 5G, few are subscribing.
