Verizon: “We are very aggressive in laying out fiber and 5G in the right places”

By B.N. Frank

Reports have indicated that 4G service is still more private, reliable and secure than 5G (see 1, 2, 3).  American 5G opposition has been ongoing due to concerns about property value (see 1, 2, 3, 4), public safety (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), health (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10), cybersecurity (see 1, 2), privacy (see 1, 2, 3), economic, and/or environmental risks (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).  In fact, lawsuits have been filed against deployment on Earth (see 1, 2, 3, 4) and in space.

Nevertheless, the 5G rollout continues in the U.S. (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).  This includes fiber for 5G which is also extremely dangerous (see 1, 2).

From Fierce Wireless:

Verizon’s current fiber rollouts are all connected to 5G

When you think of Verizon and fiber, you tend to think of Fios, which is a fiber-based brand in the Northeast U.S. that bundles connectivity, voice and video. But Verizon has other fiber, as well, including long-haul routes. And the company is currently deploying lots of fiber as part of its 5G roll-outs.

Aparna Khurjekar, president of Verizon Business Markets, said, “All the 5G nodes need fiber. We are very aggressive in laying out fiber and 5G in the right places. It [fiber] is always associated with 5G. We believe 5G is the future of bandwidth connectivity.”

Verizon and AT&T vie for the most fiber in the United States with each having more than 800,000 route miles, according to analysts at Cowen.

As part of its 5G/fiber rollouts, Verizon is also looking to help close the digital divide. And it sees fixed wireless access (FWA) as a technology to help with that. In an announcement earlier this year, Verizon said, “Laying fiber cable over long distances and wide areas is expensive and difficult, but 5G wireless broadband could prove a worthwhile investment for those communities.”

It said rural homes and businesses, where 5G becomes available, could get fast wireless internet through 5G FWA services.

Verizon Business FWA

Besides using FWA to help close the digital divide, Verizon Business is touting the technology to its small and medium business customers as a replacement to cable and legacy telecom connections.

Verizon Business is currently offering its 5G Business Internet FWA service in parts of 54 U.S. cities.

Of FWA, Khurjekar said, “We’re seeing a lot of interest in the mid-size market. It started with Business Internet being a backup or temporary solution.” But now businesses are replacing plain old telephone service (POTS) lines with the fixed wireless service.

Business who switch their connectivity from another provider get a credit of up to $1,500 to offset early termination fees.

Verizon also offers 4G FWA service to businesses. “We want to blanket the U.S.,” said Khurjekar. “Wherever we have wireless 4G today, we’re open for Business Internet as well.”

In 2019, telecom executives gave U.S. congressional testimony that they had NO independent studies proving that 5G is safe.

Later in 2019, then presidential candidate Joe Biden was confronted with this fact and said:

So far, there has been no indication that anyone in now President Biden’s administration has ordered 5G be “studied thoroughly”.

In May of this year, scientists submitted a letter to President Biden asking him to protect the public from 5G and other unsafe technology.  In June, he committed to adding more.  Argh.

Americans opposed to 5G may click here to sign a letter asking the Biden administration to stop deployment.

Opposition to 5G is worldwide.  Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums.  The majority of scientists oppose deployment.
