1) NEWS COVERAGE OF CITY OF WINNIPEG COMMITTEE MEETING ON SEPTEMBER 28th.
Here’s the outcome of the meeting (final paragraph of the news article) — reading the whole article is good though, because at least it’s fairly balanced reporting (for a change!), and one of the quotes in it is excellent (p.s. the headline seems odd as the item wasn’t held):
Divided opinions leave 5G service on hold at City Hall
“Moving the issue forward, the City will create a website for ongoing public communication on small cell that will be a hub for updates on the technology and planning. The site will include information about 5G trials, once available, and subsequent steps including links to wireless service providers, Health Canada, and Innovation Science and Economic Development Canada. The City will also provide a dedicated email address for inquiries on the topic.”
2) Xplornet LAUNCHES 5G STAND-ALONE NETWORK FOR RURAL CANADA.
Canadian rural broadband company launches 5G Standalone in New Brunswick, 250 community expansion planned for 2022
“Xplornet Communications announced this week the launch of Canada’s first rural 5G Standalone network. The Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) service goes online first in Xplornet’s home province of New Brunswick. The broadband provider plans to expand throughout the province over the next six months. Xplornet said it will expand its burgeoning 5G SA network to 250 additional communities in rural Canada throughout 2022.”
3) TESLA AUTOPILOT CARS.
I really, really, really do not understand why all these vehicles haven’t been entirely recalled, totally banned. This article is mostly about one horrible accident, and there have been many bad accidents.

4) “U.S. TREASURY FAVORS FIBER IN GUIDANCE FOR $10B CAPITAL PROJECTS FUND“
Two interesting points in this paragraph!
“Fresh instructions released by the Department of the Treasury explicitly encourage states “to prioritize investments in fiber-optic infrastructure where feasible, as such advanced technology better supports future needs.” Interestingly, the guidelines also urge states to pursue “projects that involve broadband networks owned, operated by or affiliated with local governments, non-profits and co-operatives — providers with less pressure to generate profits and with a commitment to serving entire communities.””
5) RESIDENTS IN MAINE GAINING SOME ATTENTION.
‘We have to be careful’: Lawmakers from York float commission to study 5G cell towers
The article is packed with details:
YORK, Maine — Concerned residents who have banded together for the past several months to oppose the building of cell antennas atop a water tower in their neighborhood are gaining some attention for their cause, even as they encounter setbacks….
Their concerns have caught the attention of local state representatives, who have signaled their interest in drafting a bill that would create a commission to study the potential risks associated with 5G cell towers.
Rep. Lydia Blume, D-York, said on Friday, Sept. 24, she would co-sponsor a bill with Rep. Patty Hymanson, D-York.
“I feel like they have done their homework and they know that there’s potentially some problems, and we, as a state of Maine, should be taking that into account,” Blume said of the York Heights residents.
