It was recently reported that none of the telecoms have been able to deliver the lightning fast 5G speed that they promised. Of course that’s not why there’s been so much action taken to stop deployment worldwide. Opposition to 5G now includes French telecom employees.
High speed internet IS possible without 5G. Regardless, telecoms are still brazenly and shamelessly trying to hide this AND seriously scary 5G warnings from the public. Last year, Verizon partnered with The New York Times to create a 5G journalism lab. Now the company has produced a film.

Verizon documentary aims to answer: Who needs 5G?
A Verizon documentary debuted this week that aims to show the potential of its next-generation network, with a look at companies developing innovative applications enabled by 5G.
The film, titled Speed of Thought, is available on Amazon Prime and Peacock streaming services, as well as Verizon Fios on demand. Directed by Emmy award-winning documentary film-maker Mila Aung-Thwin, the film was “produced in partnership with Verizon,” according to the carrier. Verizon EVP Chief Marketing Officer Diego Scotti and SVP Chief Creative Officer Andrew McKechnie are executive producers. At just under an hour long, it’s a high-quality production – not your average YouTube video.
Disclaimer: This is not a film review.
That said, in an unscientific poll of this reporter’s significant other (who, granted, routinely hears the word “5G” probably more than he’d like) the takeaway was this: 5G has more benefits than just being able to download something really fast on my phone.
That speaks to the main goal of the documentary: to help give the general consumer a better understanding of 5G’s potential, beyond faster speeds and videos on a smartphone, according to Verizon VP of Product Innovation Sanyogita Shamsunder.

- Catastrophic cybersecurity risks
- Severely compromised weather forecasting accuracy
- Base stations can overheat
Other downsides include:
- Massive job loss
- 2-3X more energy needed to operate it
- Tons of toxic E-Waste dumped in landfills
- Complete loss of privacy
Since 2018 it has been reported that people and animals started experiencing symptoms and illnesses after 5G was installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4). Of course, exposure to other sources of wireless radiation can cause this too. Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could lead to health issues in significant percentage of the population. Naturally, “Electrosmog” sources include wireless and 5G.
