Yesterday Local.fo reported about a woman in her 20s, who claims that she suffered from microwave sickness on February 26, 2019 – the day Faroese telecommunication company Hey turned on the first 5G-ready IOT in the Faroe Islands.
Local.fo quoted Faroese website Erbylgjufelagið, which seeks to reduce microwave radiation in the Faroe Islands.
Rather unfortunately, we need to make a correction to the Erbylgjufelagið-article (and hence, also to our own article; see link above). Furthermore, we need to question the aforementioned woman.
1: Hey did not turn on its mobile 5G network on February 26, 2019. On February 26, 2019 Hey turned on the first 5G-ready IOT (5G-klára tólnet) in the Faroe Islands.
2: The woman states that she has a phone which can connect to the 5G network. She also states that when she turns on the 5G connection, this pain comes almost immediately. However, there are no 5G cellphones out on the market yet. That includes the Faroe Islands. Hence, you still cannot use 5G.
3: The original article explains that the woman lives outside of Tórshavn…where there is no 5G-ready IOT. Only a small portion of the capital has it.
