    Default New Legislation Will Help Communities Control How 5G Gets Implemented

    New legislation will help communities control how 5G gets implemented. Action Alert!
    New bills in the House and Senate will roll back FCC regulations that prevent local communities from having input over how 5G networks get installed in their towns. We must encourage our elected officials to support this legislation, and more importantly, urge them to halt the expansion of 5G networks until more safety studies are done.
    The federal bills roll back FCC rules that put a strict time limit (90 days) on cities to review small-cell site applications and limit the amount of money cities can charge cable companies for using public infrastructure

    The U.S. Congress has held numerous hearings on 5G technology and produced 23 different--mostly bipartisan--bills that don't amount to much. The Congress simply lacks the political will to implement 5G technology in a way that would provide adequate protection for people and the environment. Instead, these important issues have taken a back seat to so called "local implementation." And, even rolling back federal (FCC) laws to allow greater local involvement in deciding how 5G is implemented does not address a major issue of funding. Small towns and rural areas will fall well behind metropolitan, big city areas because Congress has not addressed the funding that rural areas need to fully and properly implement 5G. The federal gov't could have leveled the playing field, but failed to do so. So, lack of resources for rural areas, plus little to no action to protect health and the environment is reminiscent of how things are done in Washington, DC. What else is new?

    Then I have to wonder whether small towns and rural areas will benefit, compared to urban residents, from the effects of 5G. I want nothing to do with it!

    Small towns and rural areas can't afford to be left behind in 5G technology. At some point in the near future the technology will influence everything---from the traffic lights in your town to your hospitals ability to provide fast and adequate health care to how quickly and efficiently your local firefighters and emergency response personnel (ambulance) can reach you. No small town or rural area can afford not to be on the 5G bandwagon, despite the numerous detriments that come with this technology. And, I haven't mentioned how 5G will impact your desktop, laptop computers, smartphone, TV (I know you don't have one), etc.

    We shall see. My tiny town has a population of 1800 and no traffic light. We are bookended by two small towns with one traffic light apiece. The highly ranked rural hospital is 6 minutes away (probably faster by ambulance). Both towns have fire departments that are 8 and 10 minutes away, respectively. My road, which connects to one of those towns, was the last in the area to get cable internet (prior to that, we had to depend on satellite). I'm hoping we'll be the last to be touched by 5G.

    "...no traffic light." Sounds like utopia.

    Exactly what I thought when I read Mr. Wizard's comment.
