Ah, 5G… It’s a mixture of new technologies, the most “interesting” being mmWave, or millimeter wave.
If you’re wondering if a particular phone actually HAS mmWave, good luck figuring it out.
Even worse, in most areas it’s darn near impossible to find out what flavor of 5G is being used: Is it mmWave, or not?!
Good luck with that one, too.
And to top it all off, it doesn’t really matter anyway because even official government bodies are really looking at 5G and EXISTING wireless tech, and starting to get worried…
A friend recently bought a new 5G smartphone. She was worried about the ‘5G’ part especially. Two problems:
First, there is no 5G where we live, so I just turned it off.
Second, the 5G Samsung phone only supports lower frequencies than our local 4G network – IOW, no millimeter wave!
Of course, it’s about more than just frequency. In reality, it’s about way more than just the technologies involved.
There is a hidden danger to worrying TOO MUCH about the effects of our wireless wonderland…
If you’re worried that only ‘crazy people’ think that 5G may be dangerous to your health, don’t be.
Just one week ago, a new paper was published by a well-respected epidemiologist. He reviews past studies of various wireless technologies and asks quite a few interesting questions about the safety of 5G as well as current wireless tech.
In the end, his opinion is that as with a viral outbreak, it’s better to be safe than sorry. It’s nice to see more people stepping forward and expressing their concerns based on available data.
Let’s hope more people do the same!
