The Citizens’ Convention on Climate, which proposes measures aimed at combatting global warming, has called for a halt to the deployment of 5G (very high-speed Internet) so that its environmental impact can be studied. The government does not agree.
Opinions are divided: some believe that by providing faster Internet, 5G would boost the economy and increase connectivity and the use of autonomous things. For others, on the other hand, it represents outlay: more expensive plans, new phones and higher energy consumption for relative gains compared with 4G.
Debate continues as regards its health implications. 5G raises issues around health, data security and the environment.
To deploy it, 5G network providers need to recalibrate their current antennas or install new ones in towns. So what should we do in La Courneuve?
You can decide!
