How 5G works: the pros and cons

333 212 Vizionare

5G internet has been one of the biggest buzzwords in the tech world over the past few years. As the next generation of cellular technology, the faster speeds and lower latencies it promises to change everything from your phone to fields like self-driving cars and remote surgery. But there’s also been a lot of bad information and conspiracy theories. Here’s everything you need to know, from how 5G works, to how fast the speeds can get, to why it’s safe and doesn’t cause cancer.
Correction: At 1;30 and 2;36 the correct wording should be 'gigabits' and 'megabits'. Thanks for pointing it out. We misspoke.

Radio waves are on the completely other side of the spectrum to gamma waves, and visible light is somewhere in between. Explain to me how it spreads like a virus and has reached people who haven't been near 5G and hasn't reached people who work with 5G.

    • @Blind Frog PS 5G needs less power than 4G to transmit same amount of data. Cranking up the power is not the way it works, and also, we get paid quite well.

      Guido D.G.Guido D.G.Acum lună
    • @Blind Frog between 5G and gamma rays, there is visible light. And a lot more. Danger starts from UV and upwards. Uv is not using just a bit higher frequency than 5G, it's around 1000 terahertz, that is 1 million gigahertz so really a lot higher frequency. Gamma rays are still far away from uv, those have a ridiculously high frequency. So ridiculously high that comparison with anything below visible light, is ridiculous too ;)

      Guido D.G.Guido D.G.Acum lună
    • @Guido D.G. We know that radio waves utilizes long wavelength, Gamma Rays short wavelengths and 5G mmwave? Gamma Rays is harmful to human isn’t it? Who’s to ensures that telcos doesn’t crank up the power to over a million times more to “provide better coverage and service” in exchange of public health? The mighty Telcos will just rake in as much dough as they can, wait for shyt to happen and points their finger at the lowly paid engineer to be cause of it.

    • The microwaves in your oven are contained in a metal housing. That metal reflects all the waves that missed the food such that eventually the complete power is dissipated in the food and nowhere else. Take away that metal housing and you will notice that your food csnnot get very hot anymore. This is already a huge difference with an antenna that radiates into free air. Not to mention that your microwave uses a way more powerful transmitter and it produces a continuous signal. Anyway, in free air the power that it can induce decreases very rapidly when increasing distance. So to resume, mobile communication can induce heat (or electricity in an antenna) but it's something like 1000000000 times weaker than your microwave can do. You should also know that under normal conditions, the signal from all the towers around you combined, is still weaker than that from your own mobile that you keep in your hand, even though its transmitter is probably few hundred times weaker. Simply because of the distance thing.

    • If they have done studies on its safety and they have found no evidence of damage, then it is safe. Proving a negative (e.g. it is not dangerous) is impossible. You can say that you are as sure that it isn’t harmful as one can possibly be, but the nature of science is to be careful in your statements. Anyway, reported.

About the on the health.....amm and you do not need to get cancer even a headache is enough to conclude that these waves are unhealthy. The brain operates with electrical impulses. Even the phone as small as it is it is said that you have to take a rest between each phone call. Wondering why.

  • Have you experience symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, poor memory, difficulty sleeping, and lack of clarity in your thoughts? It may seem that these could be the results of day-to-day stress and busyness, but there may be another culprit. All of these are symptoms of electro-sensitivity, which is something more and more people are finding themselves affected by. Studies done in 1997 have found “less than a few cases (of electro-sensitivity) per million”, however now as much as 2.5% of the population find themselves affected by electro-sensitivity. Even by most moderate calculations, electro-sensitivity is 1,000 times more common now than it was 20 years ago. Why could this be? Electro-sensitivity and its symptoms seem to be triggered by certain microwave frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. Microwaves are frequently used in electronics for the purposes of communication between devices. Due to their high frequency, microwaves allow for higher transmission rates and small antenna sizes, which is perfect for high-tech devices that are constantly getting smaller and faster. These are devices such as cell phones, tablets, laptops, and any devices able to connect to Wi-Fi, which can now include TVs and refrigerators

  • "Pretty good idea that cellular radiation is not harmful." - You sure about that? The World Health Organization disagrees with you. "A team of 31 scientists from 14 countries, including the United States, made the decision after reviewing peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety. The team found enough evidence to categorize personal exposure as "possibly carcinogenic to humans." The type of radiation coming out of a cell phone is called non-ionizing. It is not like an X-ray, but more like a very low-powered microwave oven. "What microwave radiation does in most simplistic terms is similar to what happens to food in microwaves, essentially cooking the brain," Black said. "So in addition to leading to a development of cancer and tumors, there could be a whole host of other effects like cognitive memory function, since the memory temporal lobes are where we hold our cell phones."
