Ofcom finds no EMF radiation concerns following 5G tests

Friday 21 February 2020 | 14:33 CET | News
UK regulator Ofcom has published the results of its recent tests of electromagnetic field (EMF) emissions in 5G sites after extending measurements from existing 2G, 3G and 4G mobile networks. After conducting tests at 16 5G sites in 10 cities across the UK, focusing on areas where mobile use is likely to be highest, Ofcom found that EMF emissions were "a small fraction" of the levels included in international guidelines set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).
