Breaking July 11th, 2016: In the wake of the $25 million National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences/National Toxicology Program (NIEHS/NTP) study, which found DNA damage and carcinogenic effects caused by wireless radiation, FCC Chair, Tom Wheeler, is fast tracking the 5G Spectrum rollout with a vote scheduled for July 14th.
The 5G network would carry far more data and use higher frequencies than ever used before. Wheeler recommends these new frequencies not be studied or tested for public safety, so the US may be “first out the gate”. Virtually every home or lamppost would be outfitted with a small cell tower. According to Wheeler’s June 20 remarks at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., “5G build out is going to be very infrastructure intensive, requiring a massive deployment of small cells.”
