The 5G network. And is it anything to worry about? (and will humanity still be around for 6G?!)  These are quandaries we’ve put to members of our Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads.

Put simply 5G (Fifth-generation wireless) is the latest iteration of cellular technology, engineered to greatly increase the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks. And, as TechRadar.com explains,”5G networks are the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, offering faster speeds and more reliable connections on smartphones and other devices than ever before… The networks will help power a huge rise in Internet of Things technology, providing the infrastructure needed to carry huge amounts of data, allowing for a smarter and more connected world.”

As for 6G, the tech nerds tell us it’s terahertz-based wireless network which is expected to be available for commercial use in about 10 years. 

It all sounds fairly harmless, doesn’t it? Well, not according to Undergrounders. Some of our Underground Knowledge group members are tech nerds, not to mention scientists and others of their ilk, and it turns out many of them have reservations about 5G and where the whole Fifth-generation wireless thingy is heading.
