The outcry when the 4G Street-pole tower went up was literally 7 people out of 6 complexes that stood to benefit. Same rhetoric about dangerous radiation etc.I live down the road from the Craighall Park tower. It is literally just a few people causing, not the whole suburb. I for one like my strong signal!
On our areas Facebook group one of these discussions broke out. The one guy said that he was a technician at a nuclear power plant and scored "96%" in his nuclear radiation test, therefore he is qualified to say that cellphone radiation is dangerous.these people should stick to facebook groups
People will still rely on mobile for many other applications especially when traveling through cells, i.e Navigation, VoLTE, etc etc.Also the more we push fibre into the suburbs the less people should be relying on mobile for high speed internet.
^This.So I bet these are the same people who complain to their service providers about poor signal and dropped phone calls ??
The simple test is what is the frequency band being used by "4G" . If it is above 1 GHz, it has the potential to be dangerous. Now one has to delve deeper into the technology to determine what the risks are. No one can state categorically that radiation above 1 GHz is not dangerous. All that the proponents can claim are that at the power levels involved the health risks are not considered significant. Now you are at the mercy of the networks themselves, to ensure that they deploy the networks within the rules and if there is no mechanism to get them to commit to that or check what they are doing the suspicion will always be there that they are exceeding the limits. No one want to take their word for it.On our areas Facebook group one of these discussions broke out. The one guy said that he was a technician at a nuclear power plant and scored "96%" in his nuclear radiation test, therefore he is qualified to say that cellphone radiation is dangerous.
There was one voice of reason that tried to argue using facts and logic, and he was kicked off the group for it.
That group will give me cancer before any cellphone radiation....
