Media reports say extreme opponents are making a move to block the construction of 5G wireless networks across the UK. There have even been reports of dangerous items such as razors and needles on the tower, which have led to careful climbing to get the job done. Previous lying conspiracy theorists have claimed that the new corona virus was caused by the introduction of 5G, making it difficult for us to tell whether this was caused by malicious fishing or by the knowledge of some believers.
In recent years, people’s perception of science and technology seems to be moving further and further along the path of polarization. Even though humans have been making decades of space exploration, there are still those who believe that the moon landing is a fake, and even a “groundman” has an extreme supporter.
Media TheVerge points out that btN network engineers have seen nearly 100 attempts at sabotage against communication base stations during the COVID-19 epidemic, and have been careful of maliciously hidden blades and pins even during maintenance upgrades.
In addition to the UK, personal attacks on 5G base stations and even telecommunications workers have been recorded in the US and elsewhere. Even if Ofcom gives a concise and easy-to-understand explanation, extreme opponents still don’t buy it.
As shown in the figure above, 700MHz is the current radio and television exclusive band. 2G / 3G / 4G uses a wireless band of 2.4 to 2.6GHz, and 5G uses a higher band of 3.4 to 3.8GHz, but these low-power electromagnetic radiation affects the human body less than visible light UV.
The real danger is high-energy X-rays, gamma rays, and ionizing radiation, which is worldly different from low-power electromagnetic radiation.
