5G is the next generation of mobile network technology and is expected to provide improved: downloads—speeds many times faster than 4G technology, latency—sending and receiving information from your device faster than ever before, connectivity—supporting more devices to connect to multiple networks at the same time, and energy usage—more energy efficient.
Electromagnetic energy (EME) is used to send and receive voice, data and video information. Travelling in the form of electromagnetic waves, EME is also known as electromagnetic radiation or electromagnetic fields. EME does not have enough energy to cause direct damage to molecules, such as DNA, that could impact human health.
Mobile phones and other wireless devices are an essential part of the daily work and home lives of all Australians, so it's important for the Australian Government to regulate the industry. The Australian Government reviews each generation of mobile and wireless network as it is developed, to keep devices safe for you and your family.
