Cities worldwide AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums due to economic, environmental, health, and public safety risks.  In fact, the majority of scientists worldwide oppose deployment.  Since 2017, doctors and scientists have asked for moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 12).  Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after installation (see 1234).  Doctors, scientists, and telecom whistleblowers have also endorsed a boycott on 5G phones.

Other issues reported with 5G:

  • 5G devices are draining batteries faster and service hasn’t been reliable (see 1234)
  • 5G base stations use 2-3X more energy than 4G (see 1234) plus they can overheat

Nevertheless, 5G is still being “unleashed” where it hasn’t been banned or delayed.

China boasts 792K base stations for 5G

China had deployed a total of 792,000 5G base stations as of the end of February 2021, with the number of mobile terminals connected to the network tallying 260 million, according to the Chinese government.

Liu Liehong, vice minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), shared the numbers during a press conference this week. The ministry also estimated 5G mobile phone shipments in China would account for 80% of all shipments in the second half of this year.

While debate rages on about who’s winning the race to 5G and whether it’s even a worthwhile debate, analysts cautioned about how comparisons are made between China and the U.S.

The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), a Washington D.C. think tank, pointed out that China’s mobile operators tend to count base stations, whereas U.S. service providers report physical sites. “Usually there are multiple base stations for each cell site or tower, so it’s important not to conflate these numbers,” ITIF wrote in a report at the end of 2020.

“A cell site usually refers to the entire area of a given tower, which includes potentially multiple base stations and antennas using different spectrum. The term ‘base station’ generally refers to the equipment each carrier uses to send signals over multiple antennas at the cell site,” ITIF added.

There’s also the issue of how Chinese operators report their 5G subscriber base. For example, China Mobile reported this week that it has 189 million 5G package customers and 92.76 million 5G network customers.
