The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect Americans by regulating the telecom industry. They have a long history as a corrupt agency and have become much more dangerous and powerful since Trump was elected. Their unrelenting quest seems to be to saturate the country with 5G and WiFi regardless of the warnings or consequences (see 1. 2. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. 10. 11).
American 5G opposition includes doctors, environmentalists, meteorologists, NASA, NOAA, the U.S. Navy, the Department of Defense, and more. Cities AND countries have already taken action against 5G deployment (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. 7. 8, 9). Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals becoming sick after it was turned on (see 1. 2, 3, 4). Exposure to 5G (see 1, 2) and other sources of wireless radiation (see 1, 2) can reduce immunity and cause other health issues including increased cancer risk.
Regardless, the agency is hell bent on speeding up deployment during the pandemic (see 1, 2. 3, 4, 5). This includes approving tens of thousands of satellites to blast 5G and WiFi at us from space (see 1, 2, 3). Lawsuits have been filed against the agency for NOT protecting the public from unsafe levels of radiation (see 1, 2) as well as 5G. Nevertheless, on June 9 the FCC will vote on how to further squash opposition in order to install more of this horrible technology.
The FCC’s 5G upgrade order intended for a June vote continues a multi-year effort by Congress and the FCC to eliminate needless tower upgrade delays. In 2012, Congress required local governments to approve modifications to wireless infrastructure that don’t substantially change tower or base station size. These modifications—taking off old equipment and putting on new equipment—were understood to be crucial to upgrading wireless capacity and improving service, according to the Commission.
In 2014, the FCC wrote rules to implement the law, helping wireless companies roll out 4G services. Since that time, some of the rules have proved ambiguous, creating disagreements between telecoms and localities trying to follow them.
The 5G upgrade order clarifies the FCC’s 2014 rules by:
- Explaining when the 60-day shot clock for local approval begins
- Specifying what new equipment qualifies for streamlined approval
- Clarifying how local governments’ concealment and aesthetic conditions of approval apply
- Asking for public comment on what activity related to a modification can occur outside of a wireless site.
