5G is almost here, but it will cost you

Are you ready for 5G? It’s coming whether you like it or not. Antennas, radiation, global connectivity, lightning fast speeds, device control, all wrapped up in this controversial, global superpower.

Right now, most people don’t even know what 5G is. They think it’s just something that will make their phone better. Sorry to break the news to you, but that knowledge is just not good enough.

Only a small number of today’s top 5G experts actually went on record to explain the good, the bad and the cost of 5G. You can hear what they had to say on my free Komando on Demand podcast.

When 5G officially takes the throne, we’ll be treated to processing speeds of up to 100 times faster than what we have now. We’ll be spoiled by self-driving cars and boxes that run our homes and businesses … all energy-efficient and low-latency.

But hold on; don’t wear the party hat just yet. There are a few catches. Big ones, having to do with health risks, privacy invasion and possible violation of global human protection codes.

The good about 5G

First, the good news. Speed addicts will be happy. It’ll provide download speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second.

An entire company can send data to each other in seconds. Workers will get blink-of-an-eye access to documents, photos and files in a 5G Cloud. You’ll be able to download a movie in less time than it takes to butter your popcorn. Living in a 5G world will be like living a science fiction movie in real life.

On the frontline, 5G may one day help protect us from terrorism. An alleged government memo claims that the Trump administration is considering using 5G to form a “defensive perimeter,” which will hopefully guard classified U.S. information against cyberattacks, and enable data-intensive weapons to defend our borders.

Sounds great! Being a tech junkie, I’m a happy camper. Of course, I’ll believe it when I see it.

The bad about 5G

On the downside of this 5G world, 230 doctors and scientists from over 85 countries have issued warnings and signed petitions, begging for an immediate stop to the 5G roll-out. Apparently, the hazards of 5G to human health and the environment have not been fully investigated by unbiased researchers.

Will this breakthrough come at a cost to your health, increasing the risk of disease and disorders? Listen to Kim’s free Komando on Demand podcast for an in-depth discussion on the topic.

If you want to do a little scientific study on your own, listen to my podcast on EMF risks. With 10 to 100 billion connections being added, the negative side effects described in my former podcast are probably going to get worse.

Don’t put on a tin foil hat…yet!

Before you run for the fallout shelter or cover your home with tin foil, remember that antenna installation is still a year or more away, maybe more. Between 11 and 15 cities are seeing them now.

Allegedly, you can expect them to pop up in your neighborhood to the tune of one per 12 households. There are many moving parts and a great deal of hardware involved. Your new 5G phones, however, will soon start sprouting little 5G antennas, a whole row of them.
