I'm no expert, but I would tend to disagree. 5G is in use in a lot of countries with little or no impact on disease rates. Also, that range of frequencies has been in use for decades with things like Radar.

The main danger 5G poses is the idiots who are doing things like attacking those who install it, and destroying the masts. Yes, destroying the masts *is* a danger because not only does it, in a lot of cases, prevent people calling the Emergency services, but the masts themselves often act as repeaters to enable the Emergency services to communicate. Any disruption with that can kill people.

And it seems like most of the area's that can get 5G can also get Gig 1.
Frustrating that Nottingham always has to wait a long time for almost everything.

Re: Any news on 5G

Now that the merger with O2 is being advertised, it could be even longer before I get 5G.

Whenever somebody tries to pull any 5G bollox, I always refer them to largest source of dangerous ionising radiation proven to cause cancer that the person claiming the 5G conspiracy probably spends a large proportion of their wages to travel to places to be voluntarily exposed to dangerous levels of said radiation.
