The role of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is to protect the public by regulating the telecom industry. Unfortunately, they’ve been doing the exact opposite for many years now. The “Race for 5G” has taken this to a whole new level of awful and the agency is being sued by many entities for promoting 5G and forcing its installation (see 1, 2, 3, 4).
Telecoms have admitted they have NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe and many experts say 5G isn’t (see 1, 2, 3, 4). People and their pets are becoming sick where it has already been installed (see 1, 2, 3). Meteorologists, NASA, NOAA and the U.S. Navy warn 5G will reduce the accuracy of weather predictions and large urban areas will be impacted first.
Now telecoms don’t even want the FCC to know where they are installing 5G. Maybe it’s because if nobody knows where it is they can’t sue them when the poop hits the fan.
From Ars Technica:
With the Federal Communications Commission planning to require carriers to submit more accurate data about broadband deployment, AT&T and the mobile industry’s top lobby group are urging the FCC to exclude 5G from the upgraded data collection.
“There is broad agreement that it is not yet time to require reporting on 5G coverage,” AT&T told the FCC in a filing this week.[…]
Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. “[A]s CTIA points out, service standards for 5G are still emerging, precluding reporting of service-level coverage for 5G networks (other than the 5G-NR submissions already required),” AT&T wrote.[…]
But CTIA said requiring more than that would be “premature” because “industry consensus is still emerging around how best to measure the deployment of this still-nascent technology.” Verizon also told the FCC in September that “adoption of standardized parameters is premature” for 5G.
