French operators face court action against 5G from environmental activists

Thursday 28 May 2020 | 11:01 CET | News
A group of 500 environmental campaigners has started legal proceedings against France's four mobile networks, reports Capital. The court action aims to enforce the application of the precautionary principle to the deployment of 5G services. In practice, this requires an assessment of the possible risks that 5G could pose to health and the environment. To this end, the activist group is requesting an expert report based on evidence collected from 5G pilots currently taking place across France.
