Ofcom Publishes New 5G Mobile Site EMF Measurements
Friday, April 17, 2020 | Comments

U.K. telecom regulator Ofcom published the latest results from its spectrum measurement program, including six additional 5G mobile sites.

Following the launch of 5G in the United Kingdom last year, Ofcom published the results of electromagnetic field (EMF) measurements at 16 U.K. sites in February. The regulator continued its testing program and published an updated version of the 5G measurement report showing EMF levels at a total of 22 5G sites in 10 U.K. cities.

At every site, emissions were a small fraction of the levels included in international guidelines set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

The maximum measured at any mobile site was about 1.5% of those levels, including signals from other mobile technologies such as 3G and 4G. The highest level from 5G signals specifically was 0.039% of the maximum set out in the international guidelines.

The results follow acts of arson against mobile phone masts in the United Kingdom earlier this month. A conspiracy theory linked the COVID-19 pandemic to 5G, and numerous groups have shared concerns about 5G RF radiation concerns.

The latest Ofcom data is here.
