Top 20 Facts On 5G: What You Need To Know About 5G Wireless And “Small” Cells

20 Facts About 5G

Download a PDF of this information on a two page  EHT Factsheet on 5G and Health. The factsheet is hyperlinked (blue text) to research and sources. It is a great resource for policymakers.

Nationwide, communities are being told by wireless companies that it is necessary to build “small cell” wireless facilities in neighborhoods ons street lights and utility poles in order to offer 5G, a new technology that will connect the Internet of Things (IoT). At the local, state, and federal level, new legislation and new zoning aim to streamline the installation of these 5G “small cell” antennas in public rights-of-way.

1. 5G “small cell antennas are to be placed in neighborhoods everywhere. 

  • Street lights
  • Trashcans
  • Utility poles
  • Bus stops
  • Sides of buildings

2. The radiation from small cells is not small.

Wireless antennas emit microwaves — non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation — and essentially function as cell towers. Each installation can have over a thousand antennas that are transmitting simultaneously. Examples of how small cells are not small include:  

  • They increase electromagnetic radiation near homes.
  • They have refrigerator-sized (and larger) equipment cabinets.
  • Property values drop after a cell tower is built near homes.
  • Taller and wider poles are needed for the antennas.
  • Fixtures weigh hundreds of pounds.
NO. Small cell installations are not the size of pizza boxes.
Each installation has antennas on the top and electronics cabinets  at the bottom. The electronics are housed in metal boxes – called “street furniture” by industry to make it sound warm and cozy. These cabinets  can be larger than a refrigerator, so large people could fit into them. In addition, there will be various radio units, a smart meter, and potentially unseemly wires.

Smart cities, 5G and EMF pollution: How this ‘new’ technology will INCREASE our exposure to microwave radiation

(NaturalHealth365) Across the country, we are beginning to see the rise of so-called “Smart Cities.” The city of the future may include 5G wireless antennas on most utility poles, self-driving vehicles whisking us from place to place, and “Internet of Things” sensors everywhere. But, most people remain uninformed about the dangers of this new technology and the increase in EMF pollution.

We are told that the wireless smart city will bring us into a sustainable future of convenience and ease. However, cracks are appearing in this dystopian vision. At the very time that the smart city is being pushed upon us, our best science now shows how detrimental wireless technology is to our health.

EMF warning: Should we move forward with smart cities if they are ultimately harmful to our health?

In this article, you will learn about the key elements of the smart city and understand the steps to protect your family and community from the health risks of these developing technologies.

What Is 5G?

5G stands for “5th generation” wireless technology. Our devices currently run on 3G and 4G technology, which utilize a limited range of the microwave spectrum. 5G will greatly expand the amount of spectrum used and include high gigahertz range frequencies that have never been used before in consumer devices.

These high frequencies, between 14 GHz and 73 GHz, do not travel as far or penetrate building as easily. However, they will allow for incredibly fast download speeds. This will enable 5G devices to download a movie in a few seconds and will allow companies like AT&T to deliver HBO programs wirelessly, rather than via a cable.

The biggest issue with 5G is that wireless antennas will be placed on most light and utility poles within our neighborhoods. It is estimated that the 5G network will require each of the four major wireless carriers to install one million new base stations. To show you the scale of this expansion, AT&T currently has approximately 70,000 cell sites. This will exponentially increase the amount of microwave radiation in our communities, creating an electromagnetic environment unlike anything humans have ever experienced.

The wireless industry is planning YOUR future in a ‘secret’ way

Our current laws actually make the rollout of the 5G network difficult for the wireless companies. This is why the industry is now pressing for weaker regulations. Senator John Thune has recently introduced SB 19, which is called the Mobil Now Act.

SB 19 would take away any remaining ability that communities have to regulate the placement of cellular antennas. It would allow a wireless company to put a 5G antenna right outside your bedroom window. Call your Senator today and ask them to put a hold on this bill so that you have more say in your health going forward.
