American opposition to 5G deployment has been ongoing due to a variety of concerns including cybersecurity (see 1, 2, 3), public safety (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), health (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10), economic and environmental risks (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). In fact, lawsuits have been filed against deployment on Earth (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and in space (see 1, 2). Additionally, reviews have indicated that 4G service is still more private, reliable and secure than 5G (see 1, 2, 3).
New Yorkers were already reporting health issues from 5G activation in 2018. Nevertheless, 5G deployment and activation has continued there and throughout the U.S. (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)

Intel edge technology lights up mobile crowd gaming demo in Times Square
Intel exec: The 5G, edge demo ‘showcases that the possibilities for creative offerings are limitless’
Software company Genvid used Intel’s Smart Edge technology to test a livestream, hybrid digital billboard/mobile game prototype called “Project Monarch” in New York City’s Times Square. The demonstration, held in early September and featuring an adaptation of Streamline’s game Bake ‘n Switch, highlighted the potential for a new kind of “mobile crowd gaming,” said the companies.
“Interactivity is dominating virtually every kind of media, and this experiment proves that even the most modern digital billboards can be reimagined,” said Jacob Navok, co-founder and CEO at Genvid Technologies. “With our interactive livestream technology and Intel’s advanced 5G network platforms, advertisers and brand sponsors can easily and dynamically provide more engaging, entertaining content that consumers not only remember but even enjoy directly.”
Those visiting Times Square during the test were able to join as an interactive spectator using their own phone by scanning a QR code displayed on the Mega Screen to access the interactive stream via a nearby 5G-connected hotspot, which was provided by private network provider Sky Packets.
When deployed on a larger scale, as many as 750,000 users could simultaneously participate in the same experience.
“This collaboration with Genvid at Times Square demonstrates a unique, exciting and interactive billboard experience that highlights a new service that can be tailored for consumers in the retail and gaming markets, and further showcases that the possibilities for creative offerings are limitless,” said Caroline Chan, Intel VP and GM of its Network Business Incubator Division.
In fact, many consumer use cases for 5G and edge being pushed by the industry fall under the entertainment or creative category. In May, for example, Verizon hosted music artist The Hxliday at its 5G lab in Los Angeles, where he performed his new EP “The Most Beautiful Disaster” during an immersive virtual reality (VR) concert experience supported by 5G mmWave and multi-access edge computing (MEC).
Similarly, AT&T and Ericsson created and delivered a live, three-dimensional augmented reality music performance that selected fans could view and interact with on their smartphones using 5G, machine learning and edge computing.
In 2019, telecom executives gave U.S. congressional testimony that they had NO studies proving that 5G is safe.
Later in 2019, then presidential candidate Joe Biden was confronted with this information and said
WATCH: A woman in Iowa tells @JoeBiden the 5G in the area is making people sick and their "minds are breaking down."
Biden replies: "There is a lot of debate in the scientific community of whether or not 5G does what you are saying. It should be studied thoroughly…" @CBSNews pic.twitter.com/dE2xVivS86

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. Instead, he committed to adding more.
Americans opposed to any or all of this may
- click here to sign a letter asking the Biden administration to stop 5G deployment
- click here to contact their legislators and ask for protection from unsafe levels of wireless radiation (Bluetooth, cell phone, Wi-Fi, 5G, 6G, etc.)
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. Since 2017 doctors and scientists have been asking for 5G moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2). Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after it was installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4). Of course, there are health and environmental risks associated with 4G infrastructure as well.
