So, here it comes. 4G, and the various frequencies needed for braindead people to mindlessly watch YouTube clips while hanging around coffee shops and bus stations, is almost upon us. Ofcom have freed up a couple of main frequency ranges, and now it's sit back and watch the money rolling in time for the Government. The auction plans are to be revealed this week. O2/Vodafone must be wetting themselves with glee.

Perhaps it will help fund a war or two. You never know when a few billion quid might be needed.

Meanwhile, an "interesting" side-effect of this seems to be the EMR emissions from masts have gone haywire since midway through last week. Sometimes diabolically strong, then on two nights - approx. 2am until 8am - everything went oddly calm. The only other time I have experienced this in the past 3 years is when the digital TV frequencies were switched off all across the country overnight last Spring so they could be re-set.

Coincidence that we've had the same thing happen again just as those same digital TV frequencies are about to be auctioned off? And could the signals have been so strong and chaotic (no like-clockwork pattern as per usual) since last week because those naughty telecom firms have been testing out their new toys before they officially get them?

EG.

Using 4G for speech is only possible starting in 2014.

There is no Standard for speech over LTE.

The six announced LTE-Smartphones – among them HTCs „Thunderbolt", Motorolas „Bionic", LGs „Revolution" and Samsungs „Galaxy S 4G LTE" – cannot be used in LTE-networks for telephoning, they only function in „Data Only"-Modus.

So is 4G being used for better quality visual/audio broadcasting/downloading? That is what I have read as being the case.

The other part of the spectrum being auctioned is 800MHz. As far as I can tell this will be used to cover not-spots in rural/isolated areas. Soon there will be no escape.

Quite a few places are smothered already. Perhaps when more people wilt under the bombardment of this radiation into their homes, even while they sleep, things might change. The public are sleepwalking, in a daze of smartphone apps and trivia. This is going to either wake them up or tip them over and send them to suicide.
