Will the government raise the electromagnetic limits for 5G? What is going on

Italy is the country with the lower electromagnetic limits, something that limits the development of 5G networks. In fact, companies have to install more antennas, spending about four billion euros more. The Government yesterday had added in the omnibus decree before the summer closure an article to increase them. but it looks like this instead it won’t happen.

5G electromagnetic limits, what the Government has decided

At the end of July, theCompetition and Market Guarantor Authority (Antitrust) has already cast a shadow on the plan to expand the 5G network in Rome. In addition to this, the current government, led by Giorgia Meloni, has decided to do not proceed with raising the electromagnetic limits, creating further uncertainties in the 5G scenario.

As reported by the Corriere Comunicazioni, the government has postponed the decision on raising the electromagnetic limits after the summer break, although this measure was already included in the draft of the Asset Decree. The idea was to increase exposure limits within 120 days of the entry into force of the law. Based on the most recent and accredited scientific evidence and in compliance with European standards.

This decision appears to be influenced by the long years of debate and misinformation surrounding 5G technology in Italy. These debates helped create a climate of uncertainty regarding the effects on the health of the population, making it difficult to make definitive and courageous decisions in the field of technology.

We must underline the difference in the electromagnetic limits between Italy and other European countries. The recommendation of the European Council 519 of 1999 establishes a power reduction factor of 50 times, while in Italy this value is 5,000. This difference leads to additional costs for the installation, management and maintenance of the network infrastructure. In addition, it brings greater environmental impact and territorial density.

Some European countries apply higher limits or do not apply them at all. For example Holland, Denmark and Austria. Italy is among the countries with the most restrictive restrictions, together with Poland, Greece, Croatia and Slovenia. Public health concerns raised by parties and associations influence decisions, defining the current standard as “sufficient to digitize Italy”. The reassurances of the World Health Organization and industry experts do not seem to reassure those who oppose it.
