While the Coronastorm completely occupies the human mind one installs 5G network in Belgium. It is a light version on the devices that will come in the near future. Proximus will use the current frequency band in which the 3G network is located to make way for 5G technology. A few weeks ago, this was temporarily granted by telecom regulator BIPT (Belgian Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications) to a number of players including Proximus. The strange thing about all this is the fact that the installation of that network does not belong to the vital relocations and yet... (VRT, 2020)
With this I would like to share the following information with you:
“The collective Stop5g.be contests the provisional allocation of frequency bands for the roll-out of 5G
The Belgian Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications (BIPT) has recently launched a call to mobile operators, interested in the allocation of provisional user rights for frequency bands, with the aim of the commercial roll-out of 5G.
It is about frequency bands in the centered ranges, at 700 MHz and 3600 MHz, respectively.
The deadline was fixed on 28 February. With three operators that had responded positively to the offer, BIPT had to move forward rapidly with the allocation of these frequencies and thus allow the launch of 5G in Belgium.
As a reminder, in the absence of a political agreement between the federal and regional authorities, the normal procedure of allocation of frequencies has been blocked, to the great sadness of the unconditional zealers of 5G and the telecom industry.
BIPT's initiative therefore aims to remove this obstacle by invoking Article 22 of the Electronic Communications Act (Law of 13/06/2005).
BIPT says: “The roll-out of 5G networks is essential for consumers and businesses can benefit from digitisation in all industrial sectors in Belgium”. It also points out that the absence of this roll-out constitutes a failure to fulfil European obligations.
These so-called arguments, which are more commercial propaganda than information, are not only questionable, but also totally inappropriate, coming from an institution entrusted with the provision of a public service.
The collective Stop5g.be Recalls that the conditions for obtaining and exercising rights of use of radio frequencies should be laid down by a Royal Decree, which lays down, inter alia, the necessary conditions, in particular to limit the exposure of the public to the electromagnetic fields (Article 18 of the Law of 13/06/2005).
As far as the 3.6 GHz frequency band is concerned, there is a complete absence of data on the potential biological and health effects.
In its recent preliminary report, dated October 2019, dedicated to the roll-out of 5G and related health effects, ANSES, the French National Agency for the Protection of Health, confirms this absence of data.
The same applies to, as ANSES recognizes, the frequencies in the 26 GHz band (near-millimeter waves), planned for the next phase of 5G rollout, especially with a view to the Internet of Things.
It is, in our opinion, irresponsible and unacceptable to ignore this and to rush into an irreversible process (because the provisional will logically become final), without having first studied the potential consequences for public health.
The collective stop5g.be calls for restraint and caution and announces all its determination to use any remedy to counter the decisions that will be taken by BIPT in the coming weeks.”(stop5g, 06)
The good news is that the 5G coming now does not have the full size because they do not yet have the equipment capable of running the thing at full speed. The bad news is that despite all warnings and common sense, it is still being launched. Not to mention the fact that, for the umpteenth time, the law is manipulated and used in the interests of money and corporations and not in the interests of man. Government is an authority that has to watch over the rights and welfare of its' nationals', in theory at least. Lately, it is increasingly happening that theory and practice are increasingly growing apart.
Via the map on their website you can see if your church belongs to the “lucky ones”.
