    Then please explain how it works. I will then show it to my father who, BTW, is also physicist and also engineer who makes these things

    We're back in the early 90s, when the devices were big and sweet!

    There is a simple solution if Huawei continues to be put off due to state potential of a connection to government.

    Leave-pull out stakes from of China altogether and move to a more government friendly business climate and carry on business while at the same time reclaim those lost projects from governments who simply won't trust that communist government-regulated limitation and leave them behind. There's always going to be a suspicion as long as it's based in Red China.

    Verizon’s 5G home internet is sort of real, sort of fake

    Didn't even know that 5G could already be offered. So I'm guessing the signal is of course delivered wirelessly on the modem, but you still need to connect TV and computers to the modem via WIFI or network cable.

    Your first 5G phone could come from OnePlus

    What are consumers willing to pay for 5G?

    Since I have no desire to be choked from lack of oxygen (60GHz) or be otherwise cooked more than what we are already, I'm getting ready by staying far far away from anything 5G and anything with smart in front of it.

    EDIT: and not to mention the privacy nightmare 5G will bring

    This guy has done his research.

    5g is going to sicken us all. Your cells will turn inward to protect themselves from the radiation and in doing so will lose their ability to properly discharge the toxins in your body. Once it all builds up we will get sick and be full of fungus cancers.

    but hey. i guess we can all pretend it will be fun to live in a radiation bubble and go on with our lives huh.

    And that was only 2G frequency band they tested....

    Now scale that 2G 900 MHz to 5G range and for it's most common setting, 3.5 GHz and trickle those little cute cells every 100 feet or so...
    Maximum 5G frequency is around 86 GHz.

    3.8x to 95.5x times the RF smog incease, within 100 feet or even less (the higher the frequency the shorter the distance between RF cells).

    Now how could this possibly be harmfull to humans ........

    This study was conducted for nearly 20 years. So we can expect results from similar study for 5G around 2040? It takes too long and companies won't wait with implementation.

    Oh, there are studies out there.
    It's just they (companies) are just ignoring them.

    This is just one of the many out there.

    From:
    Code:
    http://www.tetrawatch.net/papers/naila.pdf
    
    And that was before 5G, 4G or even 3G .... :eek:


    EDIT:
    Btw, if anyone interested....With this you can check celltower locations.
    Code:
    https://www.orwell1984.today/celltowerfinder.html
    
    Currently Linux only but I try to kick out the Windows version as soon as I get the damn new version of QtWebKit compiled for Windows 10 ...

    This is sensationalism. Because correlation does not imply causation. What cancer? Cancer isn't one thing.

    Moreover, 3 times as high is meaningless without numbers, if it's 1 in 1,000,000 or 3 in 1,000,000, it's still low. If it's 1 in 10 or 3 in 10, that's meaningful.

    As to rats: they also have different resilience and thresholds compared to humans.

    Why not reference medical journals and not random websites?

    Okay, hows this:
    Code:
    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/241473738_The_Influence_of_Being_Physically_Near_to_a_Cell_Phone_Transmission_Mast_on_the_Incidence_of_Cancer
    
    In a researchgate. Place used by actual scientists.

    Same article. And if you actually bothered to read the paper you could have seen that the pdf was actually published in a magazine:
    Published in Umwelt·Medizin·Gesellschaft
    17,4 2004, as:‘Einfluss der räumlichen Nä he von Mobilfunksendeanlagen auf die Krebsinzidenz

    Hardly any random webpage...

    EDIT: And Mrk, keep scrolling that researchgate place. Plenty of similar studies down on the same page. Some pdfs are free some not. But Im sure you can find the non-free pdf from some other place too....just like this study
