T-Mobile doubles its 5G network despite warnings | Image via Caeuje from Pixabay

American 5G opposition includes federal agencies and credible experts who warn the technology threatens jobs, national security, public safety, and weather forecasting accuracy (see 1, 2). That’s in addition to the doctors, scientists, and other public advocates who warn about its serious biological and environmental risks.
Americans have already paid to have access to high-speed internet even though many still don’t have it. High-speed internet is also achievable WITHOUT 5G and WiFi. Lawsuits have been filed against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for NOT protecting Americans from unsafe levels of radiation as well as 5G on Earth (see 1, 2, 3) and in space.
Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), several Native American tribal groups, and a group of telecom experts are among those who have filed. Another lawsuit has been proposed to save Lake Tahoe and other environmentally sensitive areas from 5G and WiFi.
5G lawsuits have also been filed by municipalities. Municipal legislators have passed resolutions to ban deployment until studies prove it’s safe (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) and ordinances to limit and/or control installation. State representatives in Hawaii and Illinois have introduced bills. Some congress members have addressed the FCC with their concerns (see 1, 2).
From The Verge:
T-Mobile expands its faster midband 5G network, nearly doubling its coverage
Another big expansion for T-Mobile’s 2.5GHz midband 5G
T-Mobile has announced another expansion of its 2.5GHz midband 5G network, which is now available in dozens of new cities, nearly doubling the coverage of its last major midband rollout from the end of September. With today’s expansion announcement, T-Mobile says that it now has midband 5G support in nearly 410 cities and towns in the United States.
The new expansion comes just after the launch of Apple’s new 5G-compatible iPhone 12 lineup, which is expected to vastly increase the number of 5G devices in the US.
T-Mobile’s 5G network combines its widely available 600MHz low-band network (which offers coverage on a nationwide scale but not much in the way of speed improvements of LTE) with the faster 2.5GHz network (which it acquired from Sprint) along with its ultra-fast mmWave network (which has the best speeds but the worst range).
Over the years T-Mobile hasn’t been the only telecom company that has warned about liability issues with their devices and infrastructure. Within the last year, the company warned again about this as well as also reported serious problems with their 5G phones (see 1, 2, 3).
Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums on deployment. The majority of scientists worldwide oppose it until there are studies that show it’s safe. Nevertheless, telecoms keep installing it and Trump recently reintroduced his proposal for a nationalized 5G plan. Boo! Hiss!
