Website editor’s note: At virtually the same time that the wheels of NZ government are in motion to destroy most New Zealanders’ access to the copper landline phone system that allows people to have a safe corded phone and a safe hardwired internet connection, the government is preparing to introduce a new, high risk wireless system known as 5G.  

The text below has been excerpted from the website of Stop Smart Meters NZ:

Radio Spectrum Management NZ (a unit of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment or MBIE) recently posted a discussion document about the planned introduction of 5G on its website and invited submissions.

Radio Spectrum Management NZ has now posted the submissions that it received on its website.

Here is the main link to access submissions:

https://www.rsm.govt.nz/projects-auctions/current-projects/preparing-for-5g-in-new-zealand/submissions-received

Overall, submissions covered three main areas:  health concerns, the use of radio microphones in the 600MHz band and submissions from companies in the telecommunications industry.

Most of the submissions on health issues have been compiled into one document that you can see at the link below.

Radio Spectrum Management NZ states on its website that it “will be providing advice to the Minister of Broadcasting, Communications and Digital Media over the coming weeks and months.”
