Environmental officials in Switzerland told Mobile World Live (MWL) reports of a blanket ban on future 5G infrastructure deployments in the country due to health concerns were not accurate, with local authorities instead tasked with ruling on the siting of the kit.
Responding to a report by Financial Times (FT), a representative of the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) admitted it had recently written to the nation’s 26 regional authorities, known as cantons, regarding the placement of 5G equipment. However, the representative said an FT assertion the communication called on cantons to put planning permission for next-generation equipment on ice was “misleading”.
“The Federal Office for the Environment’s (FOEN) letter to the cantons does not contain any recommendation to stop the permitting of 5G base stations” the representative told MWL, adding: “Rather, it sets out how the cantons can proceed with the permitting of 5G and adaptive antennas until FOEN’s enforcement aid on adaptive antennas is available.”
However, the FOEN representative noted “some cantons and municipalities” had imposed moratoria on 5G planning permission, but added these do “not affect Switzerland in general”.
Swiss news site Le News last month reported protesters had again taken to the streets to object to the deployment of 5G, following “inconclusive” information from the government over perceived health risks which was published in November 2019.
Swissinfo.ch yesterday explained a lack of government guidance on infrastructure regulations were at the heart of the problems, citing concerns around antenna emissions.
Operators in the country were among the first in Europe to light 5G networks in 2019, with Swisscom swiftly forging global roaming deals with Elisa in Finland, and SK Telecom in South Korea.
It has to be! Its Microwaves, note the following from BBC
People should avoid using the microwave at the same time as their wi-fi, media regulator Ofcom has said, as part of advice to help improve internet speeds.
"Did you know that microwave ovens can also reduce wi-fi signals?" Ofcom asks.
"So don't use the microwave when you're making video calls, watching HD videos or doing something important online."
2G,3G,4G and 5G are all Microwaves. All microwaves affect and impact the human body. You nuke your food using Microwave in the Kitchen and at the end of the day (it is meat) just like your body.
The difference is in the frequency of these, see this (rough guide):
This is a clearer picture between 4G and 5G
This is what Microwaves do to Humans
4G is in the air and in your house. Your phone is merely catching the signal but you are impacted by it all the time.But is the impact substantial and pervasive enough to cause cancers etc, not sure.
Right now, I have not seen any (credible study) to say that it is unsafe but Google and you will find many sites etc.The lie that its completely harmless is obviously nonsense!
The signal is in the air whether it is 4G or 5G. Your mobile merely catches it so you don't even have to have a device for the Microwaves to be in the air. You can shut down your device and then break it with a hammer after reading this but the Microwaves are still inside your home.
Do you see what I am saying? Your device merely catches it, Microwaves remain inside and around you.
Whether they are harmful to you or not is an entirely different discussion.
Yep, Microwaves (i.e. your phone signal whether 3G, 4G or 5G) and not "Microwave Oven" in your kitchen.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
