Thursday 9 May 2019 | 17:25 CET | News

Almost daily, parliamentarians are filing for 5G moratoriums in cantons and municipalities, such as in the canton of Geneva. Their reasoning is the possible health effects of radiation from the new mobile radio standard are still under-researched. Nevertheless, operators received the green light in mid-April and switched on the 5G antennae.
