Does 5G even exist? Sprint argues that it doesn’t . . . yet

So here’s the latest in the long list of lies surrounding the roll out of 5G;

“What AT&T touts as 5G, however, is nothing more than an enhanced fourth-generation Long-Term Evolution wireless service, known as 4G LTE Advanced, which is offered by all other major wireless carriers.”

I guess in at least this case you could get behind the argument that industry can regulate itself, at least when one of the competitors is lying.

That was the question I had when the council voted to roll this out, “Can you use 5G wi-fi if you don’t have a 5G phone or tablet (that can receive the data). Apparently NOT.

“AT&T’s 5GE network is not, in fact, a 5G wireless network, nor does AT&T sell a single 5G-enabled mobile phone or tablet.”

Reminds of when I used to drive a VW Jetta, the model I had didn’t change it’s body style in like 6(?) years, so I always told people it was 4 years newer than what it really was 🙂

I wonder if Sprint wins this lawsuit if Mayor TenHaken’s Deputy COS, TJ TypeOver will put out a correction press release celebrating the roll out of 4G LTE Advanced Technology? Maybe Thune really isn’t the Majority Whip, maybe he is just LTE Advanced?

A SDPBS special on this topic is in the works!

5G could be the Edsel of the wireless industry.

On the other hand militaries throughout the world know that 5G millimeter (MMW) waves work great for crowd control or dispersion of crowds. Per the article linked below:
“If you are unlucky enough to be standing there when it hits you, you will feel like your body is on fire.” The U.S. Department of Defense explains how: “The sensation dissipates when the target moves out of the beam. The sensation is intense enough to cause a nearly instantaneous reflex action of the target to flee the beam.”

What’s this I keep hearing about the 5G antennas array will form a “beam” so you receive a better “signal.” You know, kind of like the “Death Star,” or as LJL would say like “Ghostbusters.” Wonder if it could roast marshmallows? Probably if you had some in your hands.

Whole new meaning to “light my fire.”
It’s called Active Denial System (ADS). See how it works:

RFK Jr’s organization blasts the unconscionable roll of 5G before health effects are known:

“The UN whistleblower states, “People’s first reaction to the idea that 5G may be an existential threat to all life on Earth is usually disbelief and/or cognitive dissonance. Once they examine the facts, however, their second reaction is often terror.”

Burlington, MA set an ordinance requiring that the 5G small cell towers be re-certified each year to show they are still needed & the annual re-certification fee be paid by the tower/antenna owner. Verizon withdrew their master license agreement b/c (apparently) they thought the re-cert. fee would set a precedent.

S. Falls should pass such an ordinance as it is getting taken to the cleaners by the low fees allowed & effectively subsidizing Verizon at taxpayer expense.

I am getting pretty sick and tired of Republican broken promises. First, we were told that the Mexicans were going to pay for the wall and now we are being told that 5G really doesn’t exist… What’s next, something about Trump’s hair?
