Did fears of 5G spying lead a man to create an explosion Christmas Day in Nashville?
Some conspiracy theorists have blamed 5G for the spreading of COVID-19
In the mind of someone with paranoid tendencies, the constant drumbeat from U.S. regulatory agencies, lawmakers, and top administration officials stating that some Chinese 5G networking manufacturers are spying could lead to violence. A real estate agent named Steve Fridrich, who had hired Warner to do some IT work for him, told NBC that the FBI was interested in hearing about the suspect’s 5G paranoia. The real estate agent said, “Nice guy. You know, he was a techie guy — don’t mean anything negative about that. He would do this thing and leave. He didn’t bother anybody. He did his thing and left.”
Some media outlets have been reporting that the FBI is looking into the possibility that the bombing of the RV, which injured three, was a suicide attempt. No one has yet connected any possible suicide attempt to a theory that 5G signals are spying on Americans. 5G is the next generation of wireless connectivity and will eventually offer download data speeds 10 to 100 times faster than 4G LTE. With faster latency, 5G could help deliver self-driving cars and other new technologies that we can’t even fathom at the moment. HD movies that download in 20-30 minutes using 4G will download in the blink of an eye, and hospitals will be able to perform robotic operations controlled by surgeons located hundreds of miles away from the OR. The countries that control 5G will be leaders of the global economy which is why, when it comes to building out 5G networks, so much is at stake.
But does 5G cause coronavirus or allow certain countries to spy on Americans? Until there is absolute proof, it is best to be skeptical about these claims.
