The fifth generation should process vast amounts of data at a very high speed . If possible, Telekom Deutschland wants to cover the whole of Germany . In order for this to work, many new radio antennas have to be installed.
The development of mobile communications
The mobile Internet in particular has become faster and faster in recent decades . This was partly due to the fact that more streaming, social media & cloud services have emerged.
The GSM standard was introduced in 1996 , with a data rate of 0.2 Mbit .
This is so slow today that it would take minutes e.g. B. to download a music track .
The development, with the aim of increasing the speed , was accelerated .
The next generations also mean an increase in radiation
If it was the 2G standard in 1996 , today it is 4G / 5G with a speed of between 1 and 10 Gbits.
There are several factors at play when it comes to speed and range .
Among other things, the frequency and the wavelength . Basically, one can say that the higher the frequency , the weaker the wavelength and the range.
More radio masts are needed
5G differs from previous standards in that it requires more cell towers than other mobile standards to maintain speeds.
This means that if 5G can be operated across the board in a large city, every street and many buildings will need their own transmission masts.
This inevitably leads to an overlapping of the signals and an increasing exposure to electrosmog .
The transmission masts have a range of about 100 meters.
The transmission masts have a range of about 100 meters . As a result, the transmission masts have to be set up very close together, especially in large cities , in order to guarantee the 5G offer .
Because mobile phone radiation does not or hardly penetrates buildings, it is necessary to set up more transmission masts . The intensity of the radiation on people, animals and nature is increasing.
The LTE standard had three main directions of transmission , in which the long-range signals were sent.
The 5G standard transmits with an increased
There are 64 superimposed signals per transmission direction.
Added to this are the amplifying effects , i.e. when people are exposed to a large number of radiation sources .
This multitude of sources and the increased intensity of the radiation is associated with a high risk and it is not possible to estimate what the impact will be.
If you look into the past and examine the studies that have already been carried out, then it can definitely be assumed that this will have negative consequences for people, animals and nature.
Health, Power & Intensity
Building biologists have determined limit values for human protection:
up to 1 V/m = harmless
1 – 5 V/m = slightly noticeable
5 – 50 V/m = very noticeable
over 50 V/m = extremely noticeable and dangerous
Radiation intervenes deeply in the biological processes of our body
