2019-09-13 Dates for 5G in Canada

1)  When is 5G coming to Canada?  Here is the most recent info I can find but many experts say that there are many problems with 5G, plus the many lawsuits, that could lead to delayed implementation.

Is 5G Available in Canada?

 Major cell phone networks are already testing 5G in major cities, but it probably won’t be available to the general public in Canada until 2020. It will arrive first on Bell, Rogers and Telus (possibly at premium rates) with roll-outs to cheaper and regional carriers over the next two years. There are no cell phones in the Canadian market that support 5G, but they can be found in the US.”

2) Even though this YouTube is old, the relationship that this “bent” scientist developed and demonstrated apparently continue, given his support of 5G in Sacramento not long ago.

Update on CA Family Kicked Off YouTube for Fighting Verizon 5G Cell Tower 45 Feet From Their Home

“Activist Post has been reporting about the Sacramento family trying to get Verizon to remove the 5G small cell tower next to their home.  Other residents also aren’t happy about 5G AND 4G small cells installed throughout their community so the city council paid for a long-time industry funded expert, Jerrold Bushberg, to appease residents at a special “safety” meeting.  Here’s Jerrold in this Cellular One promotional video from many moons ago (38-minute mark):”

3)  Shaw, like many, is confusing people by promoting their 5GHz (frequency) as being faster, etc., making it sound enough like 5G technology to alarm some. Interesting, at this link is an admission that Wi-Fi has problems, more than hard wired does. Wireless devices can cause interference with many things, e.g. medical devices, sleep apnea machines, deep brain implants, some pacemakers.  5G (GHz) is not the same as 5G network (technology).

Get the Most Out Of Your Internet 

“WiFi networks can be affected easily by the environment in your home, and this may result in lower speeds or intermittent connections. Interference in your home can be caused by a variety of sources, including: 

  • Other nearby WiFi networks
  • Microwaves
  • Baby monitors
  • Cordless phones
  • Wireless security equipment
  • Monitors, TVs, and screens
  • Walls
  • Glass surfaces”

4) A plan to have a 5G Hub inside the home that can communicate with as many as 20 wireless devices, increasing the level of microwave radiation immensely, making homes hotspots of radiation and virtually unlivable — and a hotspot for health problems.

Can Sprint HTC Replace Your Home Internet with the 5G Hub? 

“The wedge-shaped HTC 5G Hub looks a lot like an Amazon Echo Show. At 5.07 by 3.9 by 1.7 inches and a beefy 12 ounces, it’s not a pocket-sized hotspot. It’s intended to sit at the center of a small office, hotel room or home and spread 802.11ac Wi-Fi to up to 20 devices or support gaming or streaming video on its own, said Nigel Newby-House, HTC’s AVP of product-planning.

“Potentially, this device is an endpoint in its own right,” Newby-House said. Its USB-C port has a DisplayPort out, so you can output 4K video to a big screen from the Hub, or play Android games on it using a Bluetooth controller.

Sprint’s own press release promotes it as a sort of “Swiss Army knife” for the connected home….

Inside, the Hub has the power of a high-end smartphone. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, the same one as in the Samsung Galaxy S10, with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There’s also a MicroSD storage slot. The big 7,660mAh battery can either run the hub “all day,” according to Newby-House, or be used to charge other devices. Along with the USB-C and Ethernet ports, there’s a proprietary charging port for extra-fast charging.”
