This website focuses on the downsides of 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT). With the help of governments, the telecommunications industry has launched a race to 5G and the IoT. In so doing, they focus only on the supposed benefits of these and neglect to consider, or warn of, the serious and multi-faceted harms. The Telecom industry, echoed by our government officials, insist they are merely “responding to public demand.” Yet the vast majority of people don’t even know what 5G and the IoT are.
This website takes a hard look at 5G and the Internet of Things – free from industry and government bias and spin. We do not hide our viewpoint, nor do we present any of the supposed “benefits” as these are amply provided elsewhere. We believe that after looking into the downsides of 5G and the IoT, you may agree that both the real and touted benefits do not outweigh the harms.
Whatis5g.info delineates nine areas in which 5G and the IoT will adversely impact us all. These are Health, Environment, Cybersecurity, Privacy, Energy, Brains and Humanity, E-waste, Conflict Minerals, and Ethics.
The website also includes a section for each of the following:
- An overview of 5G and the Internet of Things – Homepage
- A brief explanation of the science of microwave radiation
- An explanation of the benefits of fiber optics particularly municipally owned fiber.
- Actions we can take to protect our rights and those of all living beings.
After considering the downsides of the 5G and the Internet of Things, it is our hope you will feel moved to take action to protect yourself, your community, and our Earth. We need you!!
Who am I?
I am a mother, grandmother, musician, and now advocate for safe Internet and Communications Technology. I am founder and director of Maryland Smart Meter Awareness, an organization that helped to procure an opt out from wireless smart meters in Maryland. I am also part of the team behind SafeG, a branding campaign that prioritizes health, safety, and the earth over corporate profits. My formal training was in music – piano and choral conducting – and I continue to teach and play piano on the side when not engaged in advocacy.
With 5G and the Internet of Things looming on the horizon, and most people still completely unaware, I felt called upon to create this website. It is my hope that as people become more informed about the harms of 5G and the IoT, they will be better equipped to mindfully choose a path forward that represents the highest wisdom and will of us All.

5G – short version: 5G will deliver millions of new cell towers to our already radiation saturated neighborhoods. Virtually every lamppost and utility pole around the country will house a wireless antenna, aka “small cell.” which will beam powerful radiation into our homes and neighborhoods 24/7.
Internet of Things – short version The Internet of Things (IoT) is a not-so-well-thought-through dream of connecting every “thing,” being, event, and moment in time to the Internet. it will include machines, appliances, sensors, devices, surveillance cameras, robots, and even animals and humans. Additionally, the IoT will include augmented and virtual reality, as well as augmented humans.
