COVID-19: 5G broadband conspiracy ‘a hoax with no technical basis’, UN telecoms agency

The latest generation of fast broadband, commonly known as 5G, is in no way responsible for the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) –the UN’s agency for information and communication technologies – confirmed on Wednesday.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, 5G phone masts have reportedly been damaged or destroyed in several European countries, including Ireland, Cyprus and Belgium. the problem has been particularly acute in the UK, where dozens of towers were targeted, and engineers abused on the job, according to media reports.

5G can carry a huge amount of data much faster than previous technology, and reliably connect an extremely large number of devices, says the ITU, allowing future users to access a wide variety of services, including industrial and professional applications.
