Millimeter waves, massive MIMO, full duplex, beamforming, and small cells are just a few of the technologies that could enable ultrafast 5G networks. Read more: spectrum.ieee.org/video/telecom/wireless/everything-you-need-to-know-about-5g

Today’s mobile users want faster data speeds and more reliable service. The next generation of wireless networks—5G—promises to deliver that, and much more. With 5G, users should be able to download a high-definition film in under a second (a task that could take 10 minutes on 4G LTE). And wireless engineers say these networks will boost the development of other new technologies, too, such as autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and the Internet of Things.

If all goes well, telecommunications companies hope to debut the first commercial 5G networks in the early 2020s. Right now, though, 5G is still in the planning stages, and companies and industry groups are working together to figure out exactly what it will be. But they all agree on one matter: As the number of mobile users and their demand for data rises, 5G must handle far more traffic at much higher speeds than the base stations that make up today’s cellular networks.

      5G is close to IR, Infrared radiation. Recent work demonstrates that IR exposure each induces cutaneous angiogenesis and inflammatory cellular infiltration, disrupts the dermal extracellular matrix by inducing matrix metalloproteinases, and alters dermal structural proteins, thereby adding to premature skin aging. This review provides a summary of current research on the effects of IR radiation and heat on aging in human skin in vivo.Journal of Investigative Dermatology Symposium Proceedings (2009) 14, 15-19; doi:10.1038/jidsymp.2009.7.

      it won't. cell mutation doesn't occur at those frequencies. hence why even rain can absorb the mm waves. locations would be improved to the nearest couple of meters so uber will know exactly where you are ;)

      5G APOCALYPSE - THE EXTINCTION EVENT
      5G is a weapons system, not a communication system. It is not the next step up from 4G, but instead, is an entirely different milliwave technology that will have devastating effects on humanity. Which is the point. This is the continued assault on humanity by the elite technofascist globalist cabal, who are attempting full-spectrum domination of the human sphere. 5G will allow you to be surveilled, tracked and monitored in real time, in your home, while simultaneously cooking you from the inside out. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=413612686141170&id=100024773268283&refid=18&__tn__=%2As-R

      Tower climbers needed for 5G rollout. Public Waking up to Fact that 5G has not been Proven Safe for Human Health This is good news. It indicates that smart peop...le are refusing to participate in the evil, genocidal 5g agenda.  The madmen behind the agenda are shooting themselves in the foot by asking the mind-controlled people who ARE willing to participate in this nasty business to wait 4 months to get paid!!! May they continue tripping over themselves with every step until every last one of them slams so hard into the ground, they cannot get up or continue with their maniacal, murderous plans.  http://www.radiationdangers.com/5g-roll-out/5g-roll-out-delayed-due-to-lack-of-willing-workers/?fbclid=IwAR381g1_3ZBXjW7ose_-9095B7tExeC2AgKLQqsTyaSK_OHsxD8lujlY0co
