WiFi project stopped till safety is assured
Malaysia Created: 21 Sep 2008
The Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) has proposed that the "Penang Free WiFi" project be stopped until the state government can prove that it is safe.

Its president S.M. Mohamed Idris said the state government should not allow the technology to be imposed on the residents as they would be unable to avoid the electro-magnetic radiation from the project.

"The state government should take the precautionary approach in this matter and stop the project as it may affect the health of all Penang residents," he said in a statement today.

Mohamed Idris said CAP was worried about the possible health effects of the project which was launched recently.

He said the project would create a Wi-Fi fog over the state and no one would be able to escape its effects.
"There will be an increase of Wi-Fi telecommunication towers and masts all over the state. They are already a health concern of residents who live near them.

"These concerns will be multiplied many folds if there are to be more of these towers and masts.
