Not the least interesting part of this report is the article on the potential, but unknown, health effects associated with rollout of 5G networks linked at https://www.jrseco.com/european-union-5g-appeal-scientists-warn-of-potential-serious-health-effects-of-5g/
The article includes a long list of European countries and organisations which are considering or advocating a halt to 5G rollout until its health effects can be properly assessed by _independent_ experts, not by the usual suspects from the telecommunications industry.
I'd like to hear of important applications which would benefit from 5G, and I don't count arm-waving fantasies about how your toaster could talk to your coffee maker or pseudo-uses like being able to download an entire movie in 4 seconds. The article quotes a figure of US$400 Billion for installing 5G in U.S. metro areas.
And quite apart from 5G technology and its potential health risks, I'd also like to see a discussion of the possible problems of such intensive networking & control. We can be absolutely certain it's not all onwards & upwards as Huawei et al would like us to believe.
Governments need to talk to experts in risk-management and control-systems. But perhaps such abstract issues just give some politicians a headache.
