Verizon isn’t having a good month. One attorney is suing the company for planning to install 5G cell towers in his yard and throughout his neighborhood. The Better Business Bureau has also accused them of misleading customers.
From Venture Beat:
While rivals AT&T and T-Mobile were racing to launch nearly national 5G networks last year, Verizon oddly focused on rollouts at sports stadiums and arenas — places where it could show off its high-speed, short-distance millimeter wave technology. Now the Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) advertising arm is taking Verizon to task for using those stadium installations as proxies to overhype its modest 5G expansion elsewhere.
This morning, the BBB’s National Advertising Division (NAD) told Verizon to stop claiming that it was “building the most powerful 5G experience for America” and recommended that the carrier make clear and conspicuous disclosures to consumers about the limited actual availability of its 5G network. While Verizon has agreed to update its disclosures, it will appeal the NAD’s objection on its network construction claims to the National Advertising Review Board.
Many cities and countries DON’T WANT 5G and have banned it, filed lawsuits, issued moratoriums, passed ordinances and resolutions to try to stop, delay, or limit deployment (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. 7. 8, 9). Few people are subscribing to it where it’s been installed. Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals becoming sick after 5G was turned on including in one of the stadiums where Verizon had installed it (see 1. 2, 3, 4). Go figure.
