The Big Island of Hawaii Calls for a Halt to 5G

•, Inside Towers

The Hawaii County Council, which represents the entire Big Island of Hawaii and over 200,000 residents, overwhelmingly passed a resolution last Wednesday calling for wireless companies to halt 5G deployments citing health and environmental risks.

After hearing hours of public testimony decrying the supposed health risks of the new cellular network technology, the council voted 8-1 to approve a resolution calling for "telecommunication companies and public utilities operating in Hawaii County" to halt any 5G development until independent research and testing concludes it is safe for humans, according to the Hawaii Tribune Herald.
