The FCC has approved 5G technology for America. Words from Chairman Tom Wheeler (formerly the wireless industry's chief lobbyist) at a June 20, 2016 press conference: 5G will use much higher frequency bands (24 GHz to 100+ GHz), antennas that can aim and amplify signals, massive deployment of small cells, tens of billions of dollars in economic activity, hundreds of billions of microchips ... if something CAN be connected, it WILL be connected ... unlike other countries, we won't wait for the standards.

"Connection" is not just about fast Internet and communication. It's also about collecting data; the claim to "better serve you" is a mask for consumer differentiation that enables different rates for different folks ... and then there's the surveillance aspect AND the health aspect. GigaHertz (GHz) stands for "billion Hertz," meaning one billion cycles (frequency) per second. Living organisms, including the human body and brain, are accustomed to planetary frequencies of 7-12 Hz -- compare this to billions of cycles per second! We are talking about cell-shattering forces: When cell membranes are destroyed, the cell literally "crashes" -- critical enzymes and proteins are lost and cells sicken or perish at rapid rates. A dying cell may become cancerous as it attempts to defend itself by way of glycolysis (look it up) and endless division/eproduction (a tumor).
The 5G rollout, with its "massive deployment of small cells," looks like the start of Artemis (wireless "hunting") technology ... see my earlier post here.
