The broadband connection to the Internet in Germany is at the level of a developing country. Even Albania is a high-tech paradise by comparison. With regard to prices e.g. for a mobile flat rate, we are still the undisputed number 1, no other country is as expensive as we are. The completely inefficient mobile network infrastructure wants to make customers believe that a new age of the mobile radio standard is imminent: data rates up to 20 Gbit / s, latency times under one millisecond for real-time applications and up to 90% less power consumption during data transfer.
These advertising bubbles, which are downright stupid on closer inspection, would make even Baron Munchausen’s face flush if the Germans only knew how they were bullied … Because: These number games are pure theory! There is a physical relationship between frequency, data throughput and range. The 5G frequency has the highest data throughput, but a ridiculously short range of a few hundred meters. The promised data transfer rates are already ambitious in big cities, in rural areas they are pure utopia.
The fatal thing is that 5G is based primarily on millimeter wave bandwidth (MMW), exactly the bandwidth that penetrates human skin tissue (sweat channels act like antennas) and is associated with numerous health problems, such as heart problems, immune disorders or pain. In contrast to 4G, which is installed on towers and buildings, 5G requires “small cell antennas”, which have to be placed everywhere in the neighborhood in extremely high density. Since 5G does not replace current radio technology, but supplements it, it will lead to an exponential increase in pollution, the consequences of which nobody can estimate.
