Brussels govt to propose higher antenna limits to support 5G roll-out

Tuesday 23 October 2018 | 09:16 CET | News
The Brussels region environment minister Celine Fremault said she plans to propose an increase in the region's limits for electromagnetic radiation from cell antennas, in order to support the roll-out of 5G networks, which will require many more antennas. She announced the move in an interview with L'Echo after the regulator BIPT released a report showing that 5G networks would not be possible under the current radiation limits.
