The lawsuits and opposition regarding the “Race for 5G” and forced widespread small cell installation are not going away (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22).
According to many respected sources, 5G is too risky (see 1, 2, 3). In fact, telecom companies have provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is biologically or environmentally safe. People and their pets are already getting sick where 5G is operating (see 1, 2, 3).
Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be enough to stop China and other countries – including the U.S. – from planning to expose us to even more harmful wireless radiation via 6G.
SHANGHAI: China has officially started researching sixth-generation telecoms technology, state media reported on Thursday (Nov 7), a move it described as aiming to promote the latest wireless innovation.
Technologies related to ultra-fast mobile services have become a key conflict point between the United States and China in recent months.
Countries around the world have been racing to roll out 5G next generation wireless networks, which can provide data speeds at least 20 times faster than 4G and promises to support new technologies such as self-driving cars and augmented reality.
The race has also embroiled China’s Huawei Technologies, the world’s largest telecoms equipment vendor, which is heavily involved in building many of these networks.
The US government, fearing that Huawei’s equipment could be used by China for spying, has placed Huawei on a blacklist in May that banned the company from buying American-made parts. The US government led a campaign to convince its allies to bar it from their 5G networks. Huawei has repeatedly denied the claims.
Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump in February tweeted that he wanted 6G technology in the United States as soon as possible, urging US firms to step up their efforts or get left behind.
Beijing’s move to kickstart research into 6G comes days after the country’s top three telecos rolled out 5G mobile phone services nationwide.
China had originally said it would launch the ultra-fast mobile internet service early next year but accelerated its plans as tensions with the United States heated up.
