As more people wake up to 5G’s negative health implications, is Britain’s national fixed network builder Openreach offering a solution? To some extent, yes.
Digital Survivor mentioned yesterday a brief exchange with a BT Openreach engineer working to upgrade fibre networks in preparation for super-fast 5G hitting Edinburgh this year.
The fine fella, pictured above, was pretty savvy about serious health issues associated with electromagnetic fields (EMF) and radio-frequency (RF) radiation and even gave out a reassuring message when he said that “Openreach will put fibre into every home in Britain over the next few years”.
As I commented in that blog article yesterday, this is great news because fibre straight to router means it should be possible to disable the wi-fi signal and instead connect home devices using ethernet cables.
But what difference will that really make? After all, military grade 5G tech is intent on irradiating our wider environment entirely!
What is Openreach?
Openreach maintains the UK’s fixed telecommunications networks. The company is an offshoot of British Telecom, which itself used to enjoy a monopoly controlling all the country’s landlines before commercial rivals were set loose in their market.
Hiring 3,000 new engineers in order to help wire up at least 3 million UK homes to 5G fibre-based networks by the end of 2020, Openreach’s longer-term mission is to connect 10 million by 2025.
This is fantastic news for those of us seeking to avoid 5G electrosmog smothering our homes and, perhaps, workplaces.
Why is wired so good?
No matter how greased lightning 5G broadband turns out to be, it will run even faster when connected by wire rather than through the air.
This has always been the case with older equipment. For example, my current download speed is over 50Mbps using ethernet but only around half that through wi-fi.
Using a wired connection is also far healthier than being subjected (often without our consent) to wi-fi’s powerful EMF pollution and endless pulses of particularly damaging RF radiation.
Of course, this option relies on new models of router continuing to feature ethernet ports. That may possibly not always be the case as 5G facilitates the so-called Internet of Things – ultimately a surveillance matrix designed to connect every thing and every living person everywhere.
Before we get too full of praise and whoop with joy at the thought of fibre, know that Openreach does intend to play a significant role in supporting 5G’s wider rollout across mobile as well as fixed-line networks. From a business perspective, that clearly makes sense.
But from a public health angle, this means there will always be 5G pumping out its badness 24/7.
And while we can hardly go next door and hard-wire our neighbour’s baby monitor sat the other side of our own bedroom, or cable up that public wi-fi modem bolted to a lamppost outside our front door or hidden under a manhole cover in the street, 5G will still microwave us every second of our remaining lives.
What we can do, however, is spread awareness of 5G and its perils. Then we can start to pool any strategies we devise to take out the killer tech entirely.
