Three-year moratorium on 4G & 5G in Geneva, Switzerland
Switzerland: The Canton of Geneva has introduced a three-year moratorium on 4G and 5G. The amendment to the law stipulates that any new installation will be subject to a permit during this period. This applies to both ‘4G+’ a.k.a. 1st wave 5G, operating at the 3.5 Gigahertz frequency, and 5G at 26 Gigahertz, which has not yet been rolled out in Switzerland.
The Grand Council adopted the resolution with 56 yes and 36 no. The Geneva action was reported in “Three-year moratorium on 4G + and 5G in Geneva” which states, “the moratorium adopted Thursday evening also aims to respond to the growing concern of the population” and quotes deputy Green Jean Rossiaud, “The precautionary principle prevails in view of the absence of independent studies on the effects of this technology on health and biodiversity.”
