Like many other cities across the nation, it’s time for San Ramon to challenge the FCC. Our citizens should not be a test group for the wireless carriers - increasing radio frequency to his extent could harm all of us! Ajit Pai is a federal FCC government “yes man” to the 1% and will not do what’s best for the people of this nation.

I live in Pleasanton. We in Pleasanton, just as in Danville, deal with holes in cell coverage with different providers. This is a safety concern and could lead to loss of life if emergency services can't be contacted because of spotty coverage.

There are no negative health effects from RFI from cell towers, large or small. The extremely low individual photon energy at cellphone frequencies and low signal energy make these signals entirely harmless. Sunlight, for example, is far more dangerous.

Please don't stand in the way of these needed installations.

The roll out of 5G hasn’t been tested yet for side effects on humans. Also, Recently, the national weather service weather predictions have been disrupted due to 5G technology. Our government has not made wireless guidelines since 1996 even though there have been huge changes to the wireless industry. As a community we should demand that the federal government test this 5G technology as well as update the 1996 wireless guidelines. I don’t want my health compromised nor do I want one of these small cell towers outside my house since it will bring down my home’s value!

Of course the government is testing this technology and of course there is lots of fear mongering and misinformation out there, just as there is for vaccinations. The technology is very safe.
