Quotable

“There are no health concerns that people should be thinking about. Verizon takes very seriously the health of the residents and the communities in which we build our networks… All of our facilities, including the small cells that we use for 5G are actually in compliance with FCC safety standards… I think what it is is about making sure we educate people on the application because with any new technology, you have to learn how to use it and how to use it to its maximum capacity and ability.
