UMTS Opponents Seek to Block Network Sites
Posted: 10-Jun-2001 [Source:]

[Growing concern about possible harmful effects of electromagnetic waves from UMTS equipment have some German citizens looking to block creation of the network.]

Duesseldorf, Germany -- "German providers of UMTS, or third-generation (3G) mobile services, are finding out these days that not everyone is thrilled about the gee-whiz technology they've spent billions of euros on to introduce.

"In fact, a growing number of Germans, afraid of what they say are health risks caused by UMTS electromagnetic waves, are bent on thwarting the providers' efforts to set up a UMTS network in Germany.

"Their opposition could not come at a worse time for the providers as they scramble to establish the network sometime by mid-decade so people can use their mobile phones for surfing the Internet or sending and receiving live images.
