Fiber Optic safer than 5G

Verizon 5G Home vs. Fiber Optic to Home

This is a short comparison between two methods of getting up to a 1Gigabit connection speed to your home. Other wireless 5G providers will have equipment similar to Verizon from https://5gsacramentodangers.com/2020/08/21/why-5g-wireless-when-fiber-optic-is-better/

Verizon 5G Home vs. Fiber Optic to Home

  • In external antenna,
  • A new 5G router
  • 5G repeaters.

5G Antenna— Since 5G cannot penetrate shrubs, trees, stucco or Low-E windows, the 5G signal needs an externally mounted antenna.  Antenna placement outside the home may be limited by homeowner group restrictions or apartment restrictions. Your home must also be close to a Verizon 5G small cell (mounted on a light pole).

5G Router— A new router is needed to transmit a 5G signal throughout the house. The router will transmit 4G and 5G signals since all wireless devices in your home may not be 5G compatible.

5G Repeaters— Required for home coverage. 5G does not easily go through walls, whereas 4G easily passes through walls. One or more repeaters may be needed  to get 5G coverage throughout the house.

PROS

  • Possibly faster download speeds depending on speed of current service provider
  • Networks with other 5G devices, such as smart refrigerators, thermostats, front door cameras (Internet of Things–IoT).

CONS

  • Creates more EMF inside the home with the addition of 5G.
  • Creates more EMF outside the home with 5G small cells transmitting 24/7.
  • Slower than fiber optic connection.
  • Connection quality and speed limited by distance from 5G small cell.
  • Connection quality may be reduced by trees, rain and other vegetation between small cell and home 5G antenna.
  • Creates security and privacy issues since IoT devices can be easily hacked.

Fiber- Optic to the Home

Sacramento (did the study) currently has four fiber optic internet providers capable of up to 1GB/second connection to the home.  You can follow the link to each  internet provider’s website.

Equipment  Required

  • Fiber-Optic router–This will look much like a DSL router that uses a copper wired connection.

PROS:

  • Less EMF. No small cell antenna outside the home.
  • Less EMF at the home. No external 5G antenna required (the 5G antenna transmits and receives).
  • Can provide a totally EMF-Free connection with devices “wired” directly to the router
  • No issues with landlord, Home Owner’s Associations or apartment management since no external antenna is required.
  • More resilient and consistent. Unaffected by rain, trees, vegetation.
  • Router can be configured to provide 5G wireless connection.
  • If wireless is used, the router can connect to IoT

CONS

  • Fiber Optic not available in all areas

CONCLUSION

Fiber optic to the home is superior to 5G wireless and costs the same or less per month.

Mill Valley CA blocks 5G

Bay Area city blocks 5G deployments over cancer concerns

The Bay Area may be the center of the global technology industry, but that hasn’t stopped one wealthy enclave from protecting itself from the future.

The city council of Mill Valley, a small town located just a few miles north of San Francisco, voted unanimously late last week to effectively block deployments of small-cell 5G wireless towers in the city’s residential areas.

Through an urgency ordinance, which allows the city council to immediately enact regulations that affect the health and safety of the community, the restrictions and prohibitions will be put into force immediately for all future applications to site 5G telecommunications equipment in the city. Applications for commercial districts are permitted under the passed ordinance.

The ordinance was driven by community concerns over the health effects of 5G wireless antennas. According to the city, it received 145 pieces of correspondence from citizens voicing opposition to the technology, compared to just five letters in support of it — a ratio of 29 to 1. While that may not sound like much, the city’s population is roughly 14,000, indicating that about 1% of the population had voiced an opinion on the matter.

Blocks on 5G deployments are nothing new for Marin County, where other cities including San Anselmo and Ross have passed similar ordinances designed to thwart 5G expansion efforts over health concerns.

These restrictions on small cell site deployments could complicate 5G’s upcoming nationwide rollout. While 5G standards have yet to be standardized, one model that has broad traction in the telecommunications industry is to use so-called “small cell” antennas to increase bandwidth and connection quality while reducing infrastructure and power costs. Smaller antennas are easier to install and will be loss obtrusive, reducing the concerns of urban preservationists to unsightly tower masts that have long plagued the deployment of 4G antennas in communities across the United States.

Perhaps most importantly, these small cells emit less radiation, since they are not designed to provide as wide of coverage as traditional cell sites. The telecom industry has long vociferously denied a link between antennas and health outcomes, although California’s Department of Public Health has issued warnings about potential health effects of personal cell phone antennas. Reduced radiation emissions from 5G antennas compared to 4G antennas would presumably further reduce any health effects of this technology.

Restrictions like Mill Valley’s will make it nearly impossible to deploy 5G in a timely manner. As one industry representative told me in an interview a few months ago, “It takes 18 months to get the permit to deploy, and 2 hours to install.” Multiplied by the hundreds of sites required to cover a reasonably-sized urban neighborhood, and the 5G rollout goes beyond daunting to well-near impossible.

While health concerns have bubbled in various municipalities, those concerns are not shared globally. China, through companies like Huawei, is investing billions of dollars to design and build 5G infrastructure, in hopes of stealing the industry crown from the United States, which is the market leader in 4G technologies.

Those competitive concerns have increasingly been a priority at the FCC, where chairman Ajit Pai  and his fellow Republican commissioners have pushed hard to overcome local concerns around health and historical preservation. The commission voted earlier this year on new siting rules that would accelerate 5G adoption.

Mill Valley’s ordinance is designed to frustrate those efforts, while remaining within the letter of federal law, which preempts local ordinances. Mill Valley’s mayor has said that the city will look to create a final ordinance over the next year.

What’s wrong with 5G and telecom hype?

Notes from Dr. Devra Davis and Americans For Responsible Technology during a zoom meeting 4/15/20 on 5G. (some slides from presentation below)

First, the telecom companies have been charging you different fees on your phone/telecom bill for years with the reasoning that they will use these funds to expand fiberoptic systems to reach more remote areas. Because of this they have amassed funds from customers that have not been used because they haven’t done this expansion. Now they are going to use the funds to expand 5G without your consent and using the funds that you paid into for a completely different purpose. Throughout the world telecom companies have disclaimers and warnings on wireless devices (see chart below) and have restricted frequency levels that have proven to cause harm. Even warnings from telecom companies to their shareholders have indicate that they cannot be insured for suits brought from people being harmed by these frequencies. Several telecom company executives in other countries have resigned rather than be personally liable in such a lawsuit. Do the insurers know the risks that we are not privy to?

So what’s wrong with 5G besides the fact that the infrastructure will have to be overwhelming because these frequencies are short range and therefore require hundreds or thousands or units on poles and structures vs. one cell tower?  These units will also require higher usage of electricity putting our grid system in overload. The 5G hazard is just an upgrade from the hazards we are already receiving from 3G and 4G through our cell phones, WiFi, smart meters and smart houses. The 5G frequencies were actually developed years ago as a weapon to induce pain, although if used sparingly it can actually treat chronic pain. Did you know the airports scanners are a form of 5G and are used to detect explosives?

The big hazard to the body is that the frequencies from 5G are absorbed through our skin and eyes and detrimentally effect our cells. Our sweat glands resonate with these frequencies creating dis-ease in the body. 5G affects cell growth repair so if the person is older or has some sort of immune-compromised illness they will likely be more affected*. The frequencies also disrupt the body’s ability to maintain antioxidant and glutathione levels when they are within 80 meters of the 5G unit, and also alter cell membranes, changes gene expressions and alter our cell death cycle and bacteria growth.

Japan, the USA and Canada have the highest allowable levels of RF exposure in the world. What do the other countries know that we aren’t being told? According to the Environmental Health Trust publication 5G uses frequencies from low to high band currently sub 6GHz. These have proven to cause cancer, but other risks to our health can include DNA , brain/memory, and sperm/reproductive damage, not to mention the extreme environmental risks to insects and trees.  5G is poised to be the undoing of personal freedoms, human biological sustenance, and the health of the planet. With 5G being launched agressively without need for local zoning approval during the pandemic, we all need to take our heads out of the sand and take a stand against this Orwellian technology.
