Please call up your representatives in Congress today and tell them citizens want intelligent telecommunications technology that is reliable, safe, energy-efficient and enduring, NOT the present plan for antenna densification, with antennas outside every few houses, aesthetically damaging our living environment, using an estimated 100x more energy that a hard-wired fiber optic approach, creating entirely unnecessary fire risk, and presenting public health and DNA risk the likes of which we have never seen. Trust me–start speaking up now–its now or never. It is going to be very hard to reverse the current trajectory if your representatives in Congress, and in state governments, don’t know you care about the quality of our living environment. You don’t have to be an expert in the details to call–just call and put them on notice that Internet access networks should be hard-wired to the home, giving people the choice of an entirely safe connection, while preventing the polluting of American neighborhoods with biologically disruptive wireless radiation. The 4G/5G Antenna Tsunami is beginning to roll out. Congress is about to legislatively mandate the installation of hundreds of millions more antennas across the nation.

Legislators have been misled about the adequacy of wireless Internet access networks, and many are being influenced, as well, by financial support from the telecommunications industry. We urge Congress to assure the reliable, safe, energy-efficient and enduring telecommunications infrastructure this country needs and deserves. Let your voice be heard!

U.S. Telecommunications Strategy Questioned by the National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy

Senate Oversight Hearing of the Federal Communications Commission This Thursday Should Probe the Advisability of Small Cell Antenna Deployment—As There Are 13 Important Reasons Why ‘Antenna Densification’ Will Not Serve Constituents Best Interests

 

Washington, D.C. August 15, 2018. Senate Bill S.3157, known as the STREAMLINE Small Cell Deployment Act, and opposed by the National League of Cities, aims to streamline the siting process for small cell antenna deployment throughout the United States, further eroding local  control over decision-making about the siting and management of radiating antennas. The National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy (NISLAPP) is calling on Members of Congress to consider the inadvisability of antenna densification, in the first place, before legislatively mandating the installation of hundreds of millions more antennas across the nation.

NISLAPP’s report, “Re-Inventing Wires: The Future of Landlines and Networks”, presented at the Commonwealth Club of California earlier this year, explains how it came to be that wireless communications, known to be an extremely inferior technology laden with risks, is being mistakenly perceived as a solution and an advancement, and why ‘fiber to the premises’ (rather than fiber to support more wireless antennas) is unquestionably the best technological option to support our economy and society.

As the paper’s author, Timothy Schoechle, PhD, explains in this report, there are 13 negative impacts from wireless access networks and ‘antenna densification’—all of which would be successfully addressed by a hard-wired, ‘fiber optics to the premises’ approach to communications:

  1. Speed of Internet access
  2. Equal Internet access
  3. Quality of voice communication
  4. Reliability
  5. Energy usage and efficiency (10x more energy is used to power wireless*)
  6. Resiliency in extreme weather events
  7. Value, for the money
  8. Safety and cybersecurity
  9. Personal Privacy
  10. Public health
  11. The biological ecosystem
  12. Landline phone access when the power goes out, and
  13. The integrity of the communications system as a whole, which has become, as described by the paper’s author, Timothy Schoechle, PhD, “hijacked by commercial motivations” and riddled with planned obsolescence and unnecessary future costs for us all”.

Given the importance of each of these issues to most Americans, NISLAPP recommends Members of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee (which will hold its Oversight Hearing with FCC Commissioners on Thursday, August 16th  at 10:00 a.m.)—as well as all members of the Senate and House of Representatives—thoroughly familiarize themselves with the superior hard-wired communications options described in “Re-Inventing Wires: The Future of Landlines and Networks”.  (Listen to Audio from the Commonwealth Club of California presentation).

S.3157, introduced by Senator John Thune (R-SD), would commit the United States to forced wireless antenna installation and the removal of municipalities’ rights to limit antennas for any reason, an egregious erosion of democracy and serious mistake for this country, above all.

Legislators have been misled about the adequacy of wireless Internet access networks.  We urge Congress to assure the reliable, safe, energy-efficient and enduring telecommunications infrastructure this country needs and deserves.

*According to a paper published by IEEE, wireless infrastructure consumes at least ten times more energy than wired technologies. Other estimates are 100 times more energy utilized and higher in a wireless system, depending on what is included in the calculation.
