5G refers to the “5th generation” wireless technology. Its intended purpose is to provide faster and higher capacity transmissions to carry the massive amount of data that industry projects will be generated from the Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Cities, driverless cars, video streaming, augmented reality and more. These waves do not travel well through buildings, so according to the original marketing scheme, 5G would require millions of new so-called “small cells” aka Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs). But more recently, a number of wireless companies have stated that 5G signals can travel 3000 feet (over half a mile). Regardless of what the facts are, the wireless telecom industry is aggressively seeking to outfit lampposts and utility poles around the country with microwave antennas beaming hazardous radiation next to, and into our homes, 24/7. Eight children at Weston Elementary School in Ripon have been diagnosed with cancer due to a cell tower providing 5G services. PROTECT THE LIVES OF YOUR LOCAL CITIZENS KNOXVILLE. WE HAVE A WONDERFUL COMMUNITY THAT DESERVES TO BE AWARE OF THE HEALTH RISKS 5G WILL BRING. WE ARE ASKING FOR THE CITY OF KNOXVILLE TO VOTE AGAINST 5G!
