It's true though; 5G does have health risks.

 

It causes headaches in the scientific community as they try (and fail!) to come up with explanations that the NIMBYs will accept.

There are some really idiotic people out there, who are too busy listening to so-called "experts" on the internet as opposed to people who actually know what they're talking about. Sigh.

Saw this write-up on stuff this morning:

 

https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/116520997/5g-paves-the-way-for-vodafone-to-cut-more-cables

 

The bit that stuck out to me is the plan to start phasing out 3G in a few years time so they can use that spectrum for 4G. 2G (GSM) will need to keep going due to all the electric smart meters and anything else that requires it.

 

The 500 gig data cap looks promising also

Interesting. Usually there'd be a disclosure, such as "The author was visiting Italy to see Vodafone's 5G testing, courtesy of Vodafone" but this seems to be missing.

 

Actually it was a trip with other journalists too - Chris Keall (NZ Herald) was attending.

How many MHz do they need to run 2G?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Linux: Well they need to sell 100% VoLTE hardware from now on then

 

If they keep 2G running and still provide voice over it then that would probably be good enough. Sure, no data while talking but with vodafones 3g network that is virtually the case now anyway.

Interesting you mention 2G for voice, I've got a Vodafone Sim currently as my 2nd line in my iphone, if I look in the Voice and Data options I have no option to use 2G Voice, only 3G and 4G VoLTE.
