Why you should consider SafeG® over 5G
The wireless industry has fired the starting gun for the so-called “race to 5G.” Why 5G? The simple answer is that it comes after 4G. That’s the previous generation of wireless technology, and the industry is desperately seeking a way to increase its slumping profits by selling an expensive and unnecessary “upgrade.” (Seasoned activists may wish to go directly to this special message.)
But, why a race? It’s because the industry is hoping that in the blur of a huge, flashy advertising campaign, you won’t notice any of the following:
- Neither the industry nor regulatory agencies such as the Federal Communications Commission and the Food and Drug Administration, have tested new 5G frequencies for safety. Yet, scientists expert in how this type of radiation interacts with biology warn that the new 5G technologies may be far more dangerous than previous generations of wireless technology.
- A long-term U.S. government study just clearly linked the kind of wireless radiation emitted by cellphones to cancer.
- The vast number of new antennas required for 5G service will be closely spaced on utility poles right outside of homes in residential neighborhoods. Those antennas will dramatically increase your exposure to wireless radiation. (For more information about this issue, referred to as antenna densification, read 5G: Under the Hood. Hint: It’s mostly 4G antennas which are on all the time and now much closer to you.)
- The radiation will be beamed directly into your home (or business) 24/7/365. You will never be able to turn it off.
- You will be subjected to this radiation whether you purchase 5G service or not. The wireless industry is seeking to put antennas that service 5G close to homes in every neighborhood regardless of whether residents want or use the service.
If you have concerns about 5G (and you should), here’s what the wireless companies want you to do in response to the rollout of 5G wireless: Nothing. They are hoping you will accept 5G silently and without complaint. But if you have read this far, you are probably not the silent type. You’re trying to find out about the dangers of 5G and what you can do to stop it.
This site provides background on the dangers of 5G and on an alternative that not only protects your health but also your security and your privacy. We call that alternative SafeG.
What is SafeG?
SafeG offers a safe, reliable alternative to the dangerous future which 5G would create. SafeG is not a single product or service, but a framework for an internet and telecommunications system that respects our health, our privacy, our security and our right to choose what is best for ourselves and our communities. We define SafeG as follows:
SafeG means safe, fast, reliable, secure internet and telecommunications services brought into our homes and businesses by wired technology. It means technology that safeguards our health, privacy and security and that evolves over time with the goal of reducing exposure to harmful wireless radiation.
The critical element that characterizes SafeG—wired connections to the home or business—is already available to a large number people around the world from existing internet and telecommunications providers, especially in advanced economies. If we focus on extending availability and improving speed and capacity, we can have a safe system that keeps up with changes in technology and provides all the services we desire.
SafeG is About Choice
SafeG accepts the right of homeowners and businesses to decide for themselves whether to have wired or wireless networks on their premises without forcing that choice on others.
We recognize, however, that most wireless systems designed for homes and businesses (often referred to as Wi-Fi) are vastly overpowered and therefore broadcast into neighboring buildings and outdoor areas while needlessly exposing users in the building to extra radiation.
While we favor wired networks in homes and businesses, for those who choose wireless networks, we recommend the use of router cages or “socks” for wireless routers. These reduce the wireless signal to what is needed to serve the premises only. Another possibility is to use a router that allows users to turn down the power, sometimes up to 90 percent. Such routers may also have timers that allow for timed on and off so the router isn’t on when it’s not in use such as in the middle of the night.

SafeG vs 5G
Lurking behind the sparkling commercials about the coming of 5G wireless networks are dangers most people are unaware of. When understood, those dangers have led to a growing rejection of this flawed technology that is both unhealthy and unnecessary. Read more…

5G: The Real Story
The real reason for the so-called “race to 5G” has little to do with national economic prowess and more do with wireless industry profits. The industry faces stagnation. The ugly truth for these companies is that in the world’s advanced economies almost everyone who wants a cellphone already has one. Read more…
