2019-02-18 Canada may have to pay to ban Huawei

1) Perhaps the federal government is taking so long to ban Huawei’s essential and significant participation in the 5G grid because such actions could result in Canada paying huge penalties to Huawei.  Apparently the trade agreements did not allow for us to protect our cybersecurity.

Banning Huawei from Canada’s 5G networks could be costly for taxpayers

“As the Trudeau government decides whether to join its security and trading partners in banning Huawei Canada from supplying technology to build Canada’s 5G wireless network, it risks an expensive lawsuit under the terms of a foreign investor protection agreement signed by its predecessor.”

2) The cause of the serious symptoms suffered by diplomats in Cuba remains a mystery, but the government is being sued for not taking protective actions.

Canadian Diplomats Sue Their Government Over Mysterious Cuban Disease

“Canadian diplomats who were posted to Cuba are suing their government, claiming that it failed to protect them and to respond robustly to a mysterious illness they acquired while stationed in Cuba.

The illness, known as Havana Syndrome, has affected dozens of American and Canadian diplomats posted to Cuba, some of whom have come down with symptoms like memory loss, sleep disturbance and nosebleeds, after saying they heard a strange high-pitched sound…

The murky circumstances of the illness have drawn international speculation. Neither the United States nor Canada has determined a cause, leading to speculation that some kind of microwave weapon could be involved.”

Good news from Switzerland – the strict regulations are holding back the rollout of 5G.    (Rough translation)

In spite of a successful 5G-auction: In Switzerland, the fast Internet is slow

In spite of a successful 5G-auction: In Switzerland, the fast Internet is slow

 The frequencies for the new Standard 5G in Switzerland are already auctioned, but lacks the necessary infrastructure: The mobile antennas have today, the limits of the allowed power is reached.

In Switzerland, a 5G supply should still take some time.

Shortly after the auction, the Swiss mobile service provider, euphoria is widespread. The auction of frequencies for the planned new Standard 5G in the Alps, the country was run smoothly, the provider had paid for the 15 years of valid concessions 380 million francs to the state. The smallest of the provider, the Salt, assured his customers, “from the third quarter of this year, 5G to be able to cover with the speeds, latencies and capacities of the next Generation.”

Suppliers are back-pedalling

Number Two, Sunrise, has promised that in the future, a nationwide world-class 5G-network. And as the industry leader, Swisscom vowed to make 5G by the end of 2019 in 60 locations selectively available. But a few days after the auction, the Swiss provider was back-pedalling. None of the three companies want to predict when exactly the real-time mobile across the country will be available. The promises of the 5G world, of success in medicine to the self-propelled car, back in the distance. A rapid introduction of powerful and 5G networks is, under the current conditions is practically not possible, clear Sunrise. Similar to the pessimistic tones are heard from Swisscom.

Limits reached

For the end of the mood of Christian Grasser, managing Director of the Swiss Association of telecommunications had taken care of that. Two-thirds of the existing mobile radio antennas, Switzerland and more than 90 percent of all plants in the cities had reached the limits of permitted power, he said. Thus, they did not have the reserves to 5G powerful. The result: “Under the existing regulation, it is assumed that the mobile service provider would need to create about 15 000 new mobile sites with 4G of comparable coverage or to 5G-reach of the typical properties,” says Sunrise. Until the new antennas is in operation, could years elapse.

Strict rules in radiation protection

Currently, nearly 19 000 units in Helvetia. These facilities are not allowed to drive their transmit power is high, the extremely restrictive Swiss rules on radiation protection are in the way. Particularly hard mobile providers criticise the so-called investment limit – a feature. “The limits in Switzerland are, compared with most European countries, as well as the recommendations of the world health organization by a factor of 10 more stringent,” said Swisscom.

World’s strictest regulations

In fact, the Federal regulations for the protection against electrosmog to some of the strictest regulations in the world, such as the information service of the EMF holds the info. However, not only the strict rules put the brakes on the development of a 5G network in Switzerland. Also, the mountainous terrain, as well as the lengthy approval procedure to make the providers to create. And also many citizens resist. “Around a third of our mobile radio antennas-planning applications, new builds and refits, are occupied with objections”, the Swisscom knows.”
