The new network is just two years away for Australia. In 2020 the bandwidth will increase by 50 times over 4G. Potentially, three television episodes will be downloaded in one second. The speed will probably reach 10,000 megabits per second.
Considering outer city customers are only getting 12 mbps. This could see the end of the National Broadband Network as everyone moves to mobile. However, we could all be "fried" in the process. The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) says research on safety must be done.
Frequencies above 6Ghz, the 5G range, create heat in solid things just like microwave ovens. The new waves will enter 8 millimetres into the human body, thus generating heat and cooking the tissue. The eyes in particular could be seriously damaged.
Electromagnetic Radiation Australia (EMRA) points out that it has never been established whether 4G is safe. Do people want better Internet? Yes they do! But the real question is - Do we want our health to suffer?
5G networks in Australia: How fast, when is it coming, and what are the possible health risks?
Max speeds will be huge for the fifth generation mobile phone internet
Australian telcos gearing imminent arrival 5G, experts warning possible health risks, calling research network’s rollout.
high-speed mobile phone network operational Australia 2020, offering 50 times bandwidth currently available 4G networks, allowing users download equivalent three television episodes second.
In final NBN report, Australian Competition Consumer Commission (ACCC) calculated 5G maximum speed whopping 0,000 megabits per second (Mbps) – 300 times faster typical home connection.
Australian Radiation Protection Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) health services assistant director Dr Ken Karipidis New Daily agency recently recommended further research 5G networks.
“For frequencies GHz 5G operate, electromagnetic energy absorbed body [as depth skin penetration less millimetres] energy causes heating surface skin,” Dr Karipidis said.
“Although health effects expected exposure 5G, ARPANSA recommended research focusing effects skin cornea, external part eye.”
University Wollongong science technology studies associate professor David Mercer said mobile phones never established safe radiation effects.
“My biggest concern research biological effects frequency technologies 5G,” Professor Mercer New Daily.
Electromagnetic Radiation Australia (EMRA) director Lyn McLean said countries issuing statements legislation encourage reduction 5G exposure.
“More research needed 5G – research conducted technology rolled out, research groups connected mobile phone industry,” Ms McLean said.
“ International Agency Research Cancer classified radio frequency radiation – levels comply international standards –as class 2B carcinogen, same category lead.”
Swinburne University Technology Networking Telecommunications associate professor Dr Philip Branch said he wasn’t aware any evidence date suggesting 5G linked health risks.
“I haven’t read any evidence network being carcinogenic having any health concerns,” Dr Branch said.
He said network would bigger better, didn’t view technology revolutionary.
“In countries China densely populated, it’s highly effective, Australia I don’t see people rushing swap their handsets 5G compatible one.”
Australian telcos gearing 5G
Earlier year, Telstra Optus already begun 5G trials Commonwealth Games.
In September, Telstra host annual 3GPP meeting Gold Coast.
“Telstra looking forward hosting leading 5G developers world Australian businesses can begin developing products services advantage 5G,” Telstra spokesman New Daily.
5G An Optus Spokeswoman New Daily company intended begin rolling 5G network early 2019 selected metro areas.
“In first phase rollout, customers able access 5G fixed wireless product,” spokeswoman said.
Vodafone spokeswoman said 5G became reality Australia needed 5G handsets spectrum.
“5G handsets expected widely available 2020, 5G spectrum available time upcoming auction,” spokeswoman said.
On Tuesday, US carrier Verizon announced plans launch 5G technology Houston, Texas, later year.
“Houston third city Verizon identified part four-market 5G deployment plan, deliver residential 5G broadband service,” company said statement.
5G network expected rolled nationwide 2020, same time NBN expected complete rollout, early 5G access key metro areas 2019.
