Published on May 22, 2019

The U.S. and China race to perfect and control 5G technology, which would affect everything from video download speeds to national security, and Donald Trump mounts a defense against Chinese tech giant Huawei.

    Either way. It will take 30 years to build out the system.

    Trevor I love you. You make me laugh so hard. But 5G also has a lot of health implications that are not being spoken about. The effects on our bodies from the energy that 5G will emit into the ether could be very harmful

    Picture this, you are a 3rd world country, and you are going to upgrade your telecommunications infrastructure. you can purchase from China, that is ahead of the game, and sells their equipment at 1/3 the cost as the US does, or you can buy from an American company, both countries can spy on you, but let me ask you this, how many countries has China invaded and how many countries has the US invaded?

    By the way. I would like to point out ( I work in the field ) that third world countries will be the first to use 5g, it is already being tested in the Caribbean. countries like the US, will take many years to phase out their huge legacy networks.

    This whole issue with Huawei, ZTE, and the US, has nothing to do with security and everything to do with business. 5G is a technology like all others, it is not a security system. people will install their own security systems within this equipment, if their is some “backdoor” to their equipment it will be easily discovered, NONE has been found.

    I remember when Microsoft introduced touch screens on computer en mass and they had to use Angry Birds as an example of why you might want a touch screen laptop. I feel like the explanation for why we want 5G so bad is going the same way. They keep using movie download speeds as the reasoning and example of why it will be great. Sort of trivial considering the possibilities.
