Swiss Council of States rejects rise to radiation limits

Tuesday 13 December 2016 | 10:34 CET | News
The Swiss Council of States has voted against a motion to raise the upper limit of radiation transmissions from mobile radio antennas. The motion, which was approved by the National Council in June, was rejected by the state council by a margin of 20 to 19. Under the bill, radio antennas would be authorised to transmit a higher level of radiation in a bid to increase their capacity. The Swiss telecommunications association Asut warned that rejecting the bill would lead to the need for thousands of new transmissions towers to keep pace with the growing demand for mobile internet.
