5G is here. Is it a technological leap forward — or a health concern?

-snip-

5G taps into millimeter waves at the top of the radio spectrum, which have not previously been used for telecommunication. The higher waves allow for faster transfer of data, but they also don’t travel through buildings, trees and rain like previous generations of wireless, which operate on lower wavelengths.

That means wireless companies must install more equipment with 5G than they did with previous generations of wireless. That includes new base stations and antennas on parking garages, or equipment on light poles that fill gaps for cellular coverage.

I think they're saying it'll affect everyone, not just the people who use it. Because they have to put towers & stuff everywhere.

Sounds expensive.

I can do most of the things I want with good 3G. Anything more is just gravy. Throughput isn't really much of a concern for me. But long latency can **** me off. 😂
