5G is a popular buzzword in the world of wireless technology for two main reasons. First, it is closely associated with immense speed and intelligence, and second is the much-hyped 5G dangers that may arise due to its HASTY implementation!
Experts have argued that the High-band 5G is the present and future generation of cellular communication technology for mobile and expanding internet ECO-SYSTEM.
According to Qualcomm,
5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.
What is 5G a
5G refers to the 5th generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks.
It is a network ‘standard’ designed to replace 4G and 3G mobile technology, to encourage intelligent innovations beyond JUST mobile!
While it is true 4G came bundled with fast internet speeds to match the mobile app and streaming, 5G on the other hand is designed to harness global connectivity with much higher network speeds.
Partial implementation of 5G hit the ground running in 2018, in South Korea, and became a reality in the western world starting
It is projected to become commonplace globally in a few years.
When 5G finally takes shape it is going to be about how deep it will reach and conquer the world, and how franchises will harness its potential.
And again from Qualcomm,
5G’s full economic effect will be realized across the globe by 2035, supporting a wide range of industries and potentially producing up to $12 trillion worth of goods and services.Qualcomm
The good in 5G technology
5G has been hailed as the NEXT best thing in communication because it presents AMAZING voice and data speeds.
It is designed to outperform 4G connectivity 20 times over! To put it in perspective, you can download 20 digital movies using 5G in the same timeframe you would download ONLY one movie using 4G!
Ultimately, it allows instantaneous internet experience like never before.
2. 5G and Internet of Things (IoT)
4G is and was never envisaged to contain the billions of interconnected devices in the IoT realm. On the other hand, the goals of 5G are pretty awesome.
They include plans to
- supercharge data transfer
- reduce connectivity latency from 60 to 4 milliseconds of response time
- expand up to 100X data and traffic capacity
- use spectrum better than previous tech generations
The above experiences are necessary to make SMART homes, augmented reality, and virtual reality possible.
It is all about embracing the long-craved Internet of Things (IoT) technology. IoT is where machine, software
5G is thus the best platform yet for IoT because it is built on the back borne of the smart and intelligent framework.
3. The 4th Industrial Revolution
Experts and users alike tout 5G as the harbinger of the 4th INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION (4IR).
4IR is becoming very apparent in the 21st Century because it is a communication and connectivity evolution designed to bring together our physical, digital, and biological co-existence.
This is technically known as CYBER-PHYSICAL SYSTEM and can be loosely explained to mean the fusion of computer-based algorithm together with the internet, to work closely with human beings.
COOL and SCARY!
The real 5G dangers!
Of course, 5G has its negative points and for obvious reasons. From the outset, it calls for lots of changes in how telecom companies do their business, to make the tech functional and relevant.
Two reasons below best highlight the 5G dangers everyone is talking about.
1. Millimeter waves!
First, 5G uses MILLIMETER waves (mmWave) in contrast to older 3G and 4G standards which use the MICRO wave transmission.
Millimeter waves do not travel far enough and therefore, require the installation of mini cell stations close to each other – often 200 meters apart! This means 5G will live right within communities where people live.
And as much as the antennas are small in size, the sheer numbers will make their installation dangerous and expensive.
To put it in perspective, the following changes will take place in order to accommodate the millimeter waves:
- Minicell stations will be erected every 200 meters apart
- Minicell stations will be installed where people live
- Minicell stations will be erected on top of buildings
- Minicell stations will be placed on street light poles
- Trees will be cut down to allow free flow of 5G waves
2. High frequencies!
Second, 5G uses ultra-high band frequency and intensity than its previous cousin – the microwave frequency. Whereas 4G uses 1 – 4Ghz frequency, 5G uses 24 – 90GHz!
24GHz is equivalent to 24 billion electromagnetic waves hitting stuff on their way EVERY other second – humans inclusive. It gets worse with 90GHz.
What the experts say about 5G related dangers
Many anti 5G scientists call 5G anti-life technology since its installation will have to happen inside communities. This will expose people, animals
The new 5G wireless technology involves millimeter waves (extremely high frequencies) producing photons of much greater energy than even 4G and Wi-Fi — as the millimeter waves are known to have a profound effect on all parts of the human body.

Scientists and doctors in the EU have also teamed up to fight the haphazard implementation of 5G.
We the undersigned scientists and doctors recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place. RF-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.
The real 5G dangers and side effects:
- More cancer
- Immune system disruption
- Disruption of metabolism
- Neurological disruptions
- Danger to animals
- Danger to plants
- Increased sweating
- Dangerous to small body weight, insects and kids
