There is research that has already determined 5G is NOT safe. Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums on deployment. In the U.S. lawsuits have been filed against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for NOT protecting the public from unsafe levels of wireless radiation as well as 5G deployment on land (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) and in space (see 1, 2).
American opposition also includes federal agencies and other experts that warn 5G could threaten national security, public safety, and weather forecasting accuracy (see 1, 2, 3). Municipal governments have passed resolutions to ban deployment until studies prove it’s safe (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) and ordinances to limit and/or control installation.
State representatives in Hawaii and Illinois have introduced 5G bills to protect constituents. Congress members have confronted the FCC with their safety concerns (see 1, 2). Now Verizon is promising 5G for 200+M Americans whether they want it or not.
Verizon Announces Sub-6,000 MHz Nationwide 5G Network
Verizon is promising to reach over 200 million people.
Verizon is making a big expansion of its 5G network: the carrier is now rolling out nationwide support for the new networking standard, which will reach more than 200 million people.
Until now, Verizon’s 5G has been almost exclusively focused on the mmWave band, which offers the fastest speeds but suffers from extremely poor range. That fact has meant that while AT&T and T-Mobile have been able to boast about broad 5G coverage for the entire country, Verizon has been limited to a few street corners of a small number of cities.
The reliance on mmWave has also meant that Verizon has had to work with device manufacturers to create bespoke mmWave versions of phones specifically for the carrier. The new DSS 5G network means that Verizon can now support sub-6,000 MHz 5G and offer phones that only support that version of the networking standard.
Of course, Verizon didn’t just suddenly reverse its 5G strategy overnight or come up with a way to dramatically improve the range of its existing mmWave 5G. The new nationwide network is actually** just sharing the existing spectrum and networking infrastructure that Verizon already uses for its LTE network**, using new “dynamic spectrum sharing” (DSS) technology that lets the carrier run LTE and 5G networks side by side. (AT&T is also using the technology for parts of its 5G rollout.)
The upside of DSS is that it allows for Verizon to quickly expand its low-band 5G offerings. That gives it the same nationwide 5G footprint as AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s low-band networks without requiring that Verizon buy the spectrum and build out an entirely new network or cut down on its LTE offerings to allocate that space for 5G.
The new DSS-based Verizon 5G will be held back by the same limitations as its low-band competitors in exchange for that boosted range. Namely, due to the nature of the spectrum, speeds will be slower than the ultra-fast mmWave 5G that Verizon has been currently offering — although they should still offer an improvement over existing LTE speeds.
Verizon still says that mmWave will be the best experience for 5G and announced that it’ll be expanding its coverage for those areas — including in sports stadiums, landmarks, and parks. The company says it’ll be doubling coverage in cities like New York and San Fransisco, along with rolling it out in even more cities.
Activist Post has reported extensively about Sacramento children who became sick last year after Verizon installed a 5G tower next to their family’s home. Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after 5G was installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4). Of course, exposure to other sources of Electromagnetic Radiation – including 1G thru 4G – could cause this too. Nevertheless, the FCC continues to force the deployment of 5G and WiFi throughout the country even though high-speed internet can be provided WITHOUT 5G or WiFi.
The FCC is not a health or environmental agency. They replaced the EPA as the regulatory body assigned to protect Americans from the telecom industry. Unfortunately, they HAVE NOT protected the public for decades and have become more insidious since Trump was elected. Despite research proving harm, they refuse to update 24-year-old federal RF radiation exposure guidelines.
There are credible doctors and scientists – including the American Academy of Pediatrics – who insist that exposure to all sources of wireless radiation, including 5G, is harmful (see also 1, 2). The FCC still only seems interested in what industry-paid consultants have to say.
The majority of scientists worldwide oppose 5G until there are studies proving it isn’t unsafe. Doctors and scientists have asked for moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2). However, biological risks aren’t exclusive to 5G. Last year the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could cause health issues in a significant percentage of the population.
The FCC is part of “The Swamp” Trump promised to drain. Americans are getting sick of and sick from waiting.
