The rollout of the 5G telecommunications network is being stalled by at least two years over legal wrangling about the control of millions of lampposts, the Guardian can reveal.

Lampposts have suddenly become hot property because 5G requires the installation of transmitters on a dense network of masts taller than a double-decker bus. As a result, mobile network operators (MNOs) are clamouring for access to lampposts and other tall structures in cities, and are threatening legal action to any local authorities or landlords who stand in their way.

EE has said it will install five temporary masts across the Worthy Farm site, which will enable festival-goers to connect to 2G, 3G, 4G and for the first time 5G networks.

EE is predicting a record amount of 200,000 people June 26th and June 30th 2019.

200,000 guinea pigs in one area as a dangerous and untested millimetre wave technology is foisted on the unsuspecting festival goers.

Bristol university already has its own 5G network surrounding the uni and a cluster of suicides has already been documented.

In the United States, in destinations where 5G networks are already prominent and in use, sudden “spikes” in depression, anxiety, and even suicides have been recorded.

Everyone is so caught up with the marketing hype of super quick internet speeds that they have failed to realise the serious effects that it can have on their health. Corporations didn’t get to where they are today from marketing the ill effect of their products. 

Enforced exposure of the population to experimental 5G frequencies is breaking the law. It’s against our human rights and violates the Nuremberg Code.

Ofcom also auctioned off 40MHz of 2.3GHz spectrum (also recovered from the MoD) for immediate use to provide additional capacity for existing networks, which can also be used for 5G in the future. O2 won all the available 2.3GHz spectrum.

Ofcom took the decision to clear the 700MHz band for mobile use in November 2014, in line with similar moves across Europe. The spectrum band is currently used for digital terrestrial television (DTT) and wireless microphones for programme making and special events (PMSE).

Ofcom intends to auction the 700MHz spectrum in early 2020, with auction applications expected to begin in line with similar moves across Europe. The spectrum band is currently used for digital terrestrial television (DTT) and wireless microphones for programme making and special events (PMSE).

“5G-connected cows and a robotic milking system could revolutionise farms in England, reported Reuters.

The collision of automation in the workforce could eliminate upwards of 20% to 25% of current jobs, hitting middle- to low-income workers the hardest by late 2020s. That being said, it now appears farmers are at risk of losing their jobs to robots. This will not end well.”

Cisco this week launched an ambitious rural 5G trial in the British Isles that includes 29 wireless industry partners to test enhanced mobile broadband, optical wireless (LiFi), radio broadcast over 5G, and agri-tech. The trial is part of Cisco’s 5G RuralFirst initiative to contribute to the business case for improving connectivity beyond cities.

The 5G project, partly funded by the U.K. government, stretches across 2,000 square kilometers (772 square miles) in and around the Orkney Isles, focusing exclusively on underserved areas termed “not spots.” The trials will also reach from the Orkney Isles north of the Scottish mainland to Somerset in southwest England, a distance of more than 1,000 kilometers (621 miles).

In order to get people to accept 5G and Smart technology, Bristol City Council is giving away free machines to residents!

BRIBERY!

Bristol City Council is offering energy-saving washing machines, dishwashers and tumble-dryers to householders in the Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill areas of the city. These high-tech devices can be controlled remotely by you and will go a long way towards reducing your energy bills. We’re offering them for FREE for households who take part in a new research project. We’ll even install them and show you how they work. As this is a grant-funded pilot scheme, we have a limited supply, so this will be a ‘first come first served’ offer for eligible residents.

Telstra claims first live 5G data call in Australia

 22 NOV 2018

Telstra announced what it said was Australia’s first live 5G connection using a commercial chipset on its mobile network on the Gold Coast.

The operator, the largest in the country with a 50 per cent market share, said the 5G 3GPP Release 15 data call was made using its 3.5GHz spectrum, Ericsson’s latest 5G network software and Qualcomm’s commercial 5G chipset in a form factor device.

Channa Seneviratne, a network engineering executive at Telstra, said field testing with a commercial chipset and its live network moves verification from “the lab into the street”. He added that the announcement is a significant milestone as it signals commercial 5G devices are getting closer.

The operator also said it turned on two 5G-enabled base stations in the state of Tasmania. In August it switched on its first 5G-compatible cell sites in Gold Coast to enable testing of pre-commercial devices, with aims to deploy more than 200 sites across Australia by the year-end.

Telstra plans a commercial 5G launch in 2019 and is engaged in various trials at its 5G Innovation Centre in Gold Coast, which it opened in February.

Telstra launches its first 5G-enabled sites in Tasmania

Embargoed until 8am 22 November 2018 – Telstra has switched on two 5G-enabled base stations in Launceston, bringing 5G technology to Tasmania for the first time.

Speaking at the TasICT Industry Breakfast in Hobart, Telstra’s Network Engineering Executive, Mr Channa Seneviratne, said the sites, at Invermay and Norwood, marked an important milestone in Telstra’s 5G network strategy.

“This is an exciting first step for our 5G rollout in Tasmania with Launceston now among the first cities in Australia to have sites upgraded with 5G technology,” Mr Seneviratne said. “This investment is part of our planning to bring 5G services to as many of our customers as possible once 5G compatible devices are commercially available next year.

“Telstra is leading the Australian market on 5G with a series of world and Australian firsts in 5G testing and network development and over the coming months we will continue expanding our 5G roadmap with plans to roll out to more capital cities, regional centres and other high demand areas across Australia.”

With the switch-on of the two sites in Launceston, Telstra now has more than 60 5G-enabled base stations across Australia, at locations including Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Toowoomba.

Telstra is on track to deploy 200 5G-enabled mobile base stations by the end of 2018. 5G technology will transform the mobile landscape, delivering ultra-low latency and high-data speeds while supporting massive machine-type communications.

Telstra’s rollout of 5G is underpinned by the around $5 billion in mobile network investment over the three years to 30 June 2019, consistent with previous guidance, to enhance the capacity, capability and reach of Telstra’s network.

Last month Telstra announced Ericsson would be its key 5G partner under an agreement that will see the two companies partner to deliver the next generation of mobile technology for Australia.

In late 2017, Telstra and Ericsson completed a world first 5G trial data call over mmWave spectrum using Telstra’s production core network.

In February Telstra launched its 5G Innovation Centre on the Gold Coast supported by Ericsson. That Centre has since been home to several world and Australian firsts including the world’s first precinct of 5G-enabled WiFi hotspots, Australia’s first 5G Connected Car and the world’s first end-to-end 5G nonstandalone data call on a commercial mobile network.

In August, Telstra announced it had started switching on 5G technology, making Australia’s largest and fastest* mobile network the first in the country to be 5G ready.

As for how many additional base stations will likely be eventually needed for full 5G in Launceston. The following from an industry report is interesting:

These short range stations will likely be constructed from densely packed antenna arrays, which is incidentally exactly what’s needed for increased capacity. Furthermore, larger antenna arrays have already been shown to boost the range of even very high frequency implementations. A 2016 NTT DOCOMO study presented at the Brooklyn 5G Summit suggests that a 77 X 77 antenna array of 6,000 elements can exceed a kilometer in distance at 3.5 GHz and can even cover over 800 meters at 30 GHz. Even so, this would require potentially 40 to 50 base stations to provide the same area coverage as 8 to 10 4G stations, although speeds will be much higher.

https://www.androidauthority.com/5g-mobile-tech-explained-798540/

Does that mean 5 times the current number of base stations will be needed for full 5G in Launceston? Will the public have any say in where these are put and has Telstra told the Launcestion Council how many additional base stations will eventually be required?

Vodafone “leading the roll out of 5G across the UK, starting with Greater Manchester. A further six cities – Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool and London – will shortly receive full 5G too. Next year, we will bring 5G to the Scottish Highlands, Cornwall and the Lake District, among other locations,” says Nick Jeffery.
