Streamlining “small cell” bills are fast tracking at every level of government to pre-empt state and local government authority in regards to 5G small cells. 4G/5G “small” cell antenna installations (close proximity antenna installations) are to be erected in neighborhoods – in front yards on utility poles, street lights and buildings. These streamlining bills also will restrict the rates that government can charge despite the fact that cell installations are shown to decrease property values of homes!
Over 200 scientists and physicians who have researched the biological and health effects of radiofrequency radiation have signed the 5G appeal, calling for a moratorium on the use of 5G technology.
Environmental Health Trust has compiled several key resources to ensure policy makers and governments have the scientific resources they need. Please take the time to review this list as well as the linked 5G community organizations. .
- Facts About 5G: This EHT webpage has a quick summary of what you need to know about 5G small cells. We recommend that anyone interested in 5G start here to get an overview of the issues.
- Factsheet on 5G and Health. This factsheet PDF is hyperlinked to scientific resources and key facts about 5G and is best sent electronically to others. 5G Factsheet in Color, 5G Factsheet in Black and White
- EHT webpage on Protective US City Ordinances that attempt to minimize the small cell roll out in neighborhoods. EHT has compiled ordinances from around the country that you can download and use in your city. This page is critical to provide to your city officials who are interested in what other cities are doing.
