Besides the possibility of the unknown 5g microwaves on our health, one thing I found interesting, was a program I watched that said they will have to keep 4g as well, as 5g is so finicky, they will need to supplement it with 4g to keep it constant. This show suggested driverless vehicles will have to use 4g technology due to the fact 5g is so limited in distance. They also stated that much of the 5g infrastructure will be many years away from being completed, as it is going to cost billions to implement it. Guess who is going to pay for that. Do we really need to cook ourselves so we can upload a movie a couple seconds faster. Having transmitters every 900 feet with 4g, plus 5g transmitters is going to cause health concerns. How about if all the big players add their own transmitters every 900 feet. You could have three sets of transmitters in front of your house. Wow, gotta love technology.


But doesn't your tinfoil hat stop that? Where do you find tinfoil these days anyway?

Just proves my point, the first is mylar which is aluminized plastic, and the last one is aluminum foil. Maybe aluminum doesn't block the harmful brain waves like the real tinfoil used to do?

No need for a tin foil hat. You just bury your head in the sand, and all is good.

This sure makes me want to run down to Verizon for a new S-10+, and pay a $200+ premium on it so that it's 5G capable. The gullibility of people is amazing.

Note 5G does not work on Pennsylvania Ave between the Capitol and White House. But neither does most of the people traveling it LOL.

Meanwhile, T Mobile will have you believe they have a good 30% of the land area of the US covered with 5G at least.

My office is located within the largest 5G area on the National Mall in DC, as indicated by Verizon. Though no one in my office has a 5G capable phone yet? In any case, may be a good senario for us, as the mobile cos. prefer to park their trailer/antenna 4G rigs on our property, as we have unobstructed coverage area on the Mall.

Not really interested in a 5G phone myself, at this time.

I must admit I know little about 5G except it means 5th generation. Up until now, every generation meant an improvement over the old generation. If it's not better, what's it all about?

Speed wise it is much much better. Problem is going to be in general access for everyone.

It is not JUST the next generation of internet, it uses much more concentrated microwaves than any of the previous versions. But alas, I will be accused of needing a tin foil hat. The current version of phones are unhealthy to be held near your body. I cant wait for the next high powered version to come out.
