Opposition and lawsuits against small cells (see 1, 2, 3, 4) and 5G and are NOT going away (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18). Telecom companies have testified that they have NO scientific evidence that it’s even safe. People and their pets have already been getting sick where 5G has been operating (see 1, 2, 3).
Many credible sources – in addition to doctors, environmentalists, and scientists – have warned 5G is too risky (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Despite all of this, it’s still being promoted, forcibly installed, and turned on by telecom companies including Verizon which just released updated 5G coverage maps.
From Fierce Wireless:
The latest cities to join Verizon’s 5G roster include Boston, Houston and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. This brings the total tally to 18 so far, with the carrier promising to launch in 30 cities by year end.
As in other initial 5G cities, 5G coverage in Boston, Houston and Sioux Falls is limited to select parts and concentrated in dense high-traffic public outdoor spaces, including around landmarks.
For the first time however, Verizon has released 5G coverage maps, where users can go online to see neighborhoods and landmarks where 5G service is available in certain parts or click to see a street-level view of the neighborhood.
The maps mostly show small pockets of coverage, which is not too surprising given that frequencies in the 28 GHz band have limited transmission range and can be easily blocked by objects, including foliage or buildings.
A lack of coverage maps is something competitor T-Mobile has publicly criticized, going as far as to roll out a large billboard in New York’s Time Square and posting signs at bus stops and LinkNYC kiosks with the words ‘verHIDEzon’ ahead of Verizon’s New York City 5G launch in September.
