It's a lot of work and money to build out 5g. Not just the nodes but the fiber optics feeding them takes time and money with local isp's competing for the bid to get the fiber build outs for these micro cells

in my opinion, 5G is NOT worth it... i don't think that building those towers everywhere is future.. i think that we will just have to wait for something more efficient.. i mean.. for kind of special use, 5G is fine, but for now in my opinion, people won't use it and it's just not economically worth it.. It's cool that you can watch youtube videos "faster", but using 4G, you can watch 4K video on your phone without any lag on youtube . it's just way too expensive and it will be massive fail in my opinion. People will be able to download faster, but theoretically, why? why would you need to download? all things could be stored ONLINE and the access would be instant. covering whole world with 4G is just more practical. few places can be 5G but to cover the towns with 5G to theoretically DOWNLOAD faster, i don't see future in that.. i see future in streaming, not downloading. long story short for me, most people won't be using the 5G's full potential and so 5G will fail.. I would like to discuss about this topic so if somebody would like to, it would be pleasure for me.

5g aka 56. 56/65 56 is a very common number. This is interesting because of this pandemic we're having. I have heard tons of rumors about 5 g and this is phase 2 of 9/11. The govt wants to really see what everyone is doing.

A "virus" does not kill. The virus is a defensive response of the body. But if the body keeps being bombarded with harmful radiation (most of it microwaves, in our time) then the body will keep killing the damaged cells. That is the Godgiven mission of a "virus": to kill cells with damaged DNA. Why? Because otherwise the bad cells would divide and multiply, with their harmful DNA. This is probably one of the causes of tumors. This is also the problem with vaccines in general: They force your body to produce antibodies before the "virus" has done its benificial job with eliminating defective cells ................. A "virus" is produced by your own body to 1) repair cells and 2) kill cells with damaged DNA. The "far worse" thing that's coming is the chip injected with vaccines. But before that, they will keep using 4G towers to make you body produce "viruses", and 5G to commit mass murder. ....................... Follow the money. Wuhan virus ablates Inner Cities (slums), homeless, illegals; generic Browns, Blacks, Muslims, geriatrics. Wuhan virus is a demographic rebalancing long term fiscal thing - Hitler’s camps without the carbon footprint and opprobrium. Just saying…. ..................... This is our Chernobyl ....

You call this an engineering explanation ? This is such elementary knowledge and an insult to anyone informed on data transmissions . Of course it is all about speed . The question is what can be achieved with this technology . Well just look at what the Chinese do to ± one million plus people of their population which do not subscribe to their communist thinking. They are locked in a city and every individual is monitored by things like facial recognition and a hoard of other things . Part of the Agenda 21 project of the UN in conjunction with the Bill Gates of this world and a Covid-19 vaccine to give everyone a Covid passport which will allow you to travel ., and think of what else could be done by NWO with this technology like giving you access to your bank etc etc The whole program is to be rolled out by 2030 .

@CAN-UC also, satellites operate on a lower wattage than what ground-based transmitters can use because satellite-mounted solar panels can't generate enough sufficient voltage for some sort of orbital laser system...
Izumi Sagiri
Izumi Sagiri 9 hours ago
​@CAN-UC honestly, sonic weapons don't work that way. they don't use directed waves to fry electronics or whatnot, instead they rely on high-frequency audible soundwaves to disorient or incapacitate individuals, which is something satellites can't do (due to the fact that air doesn't exist in LEO). plus, radio waves can't affect humans in any significant way other than heating up the existing moisture on your epidermis.
CAN-UC 11 hours ago
@Izumi Sagiri They have been using harmonic cannons to disperse crowds for some time now. The radio frequencies and wattages associated with them, from low orbiting satellites will be much greater than people think!

Genrally, for phone usage, you don't even need 5G. How often are you really need that amount of speed? Pretty much never. You wonna play movie? Possible with 4G, wonna play game? Same thing. You need a too big file for 4G? Grab a coffee and done.

@MTutoriales#2018情報 on my old phone, 4G was really bad, in evenings even worse, just got a new phone, and it's light speed, even in evenings
helloworld 3 days ago
@MTutoriales#2018情報 That's not because of the 4G, that's because infrastructure is bad. Maybe your ISP can't handle so many connections, so he allows small speed for each connection. The best way to test it, is during the 2-3 am, when most of the people are sleeping.
