Other countries are still there – for example, by providing state buildings for antenna construction. Or with dramatically shorter approval procedures. In the US, an application will be processed within 60 days. In Germany, a permit would take an average of 18 months.

On the subject of mobile phone radiation Lautz said: "We have antenna masts with 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G." The Federal Network Agency clearly states per location how high mobile phone radiation may be combined with all the carriers that are in there. " Telekom is sticking to these values ​​- in the past and in the future.

It is always important how high the antenna is and how much distance it has to the people. "We will not exceed the limits by 5G, so if a location is near the limit and 5G would be over powering, then we'll need to build the location higher,"stressed Lautz.

This coming Sunday organizes the environmental and consumer organization Diagnosis: radio along with the European Citizens' Initiative against 5G mobile radio a demonstration train through the Berlin government district and a rally in front of the Reichstag building. There, speakers and participants call for a moratorium on the development of 5G mobile telephony and the precautionary principle with regard to health protection and mobile phone radiation.
