Mezdra became the second Bulgarian municipality to ban the 5G network on its territory, Sega reported.
The decision was taken by the local municipal council at the last meeting for 2020. It reads: ” A 1-year moratorium is imposed on the deployment, use, maintenance and development of 5th generation / 5G (Fifth Generation technology) electronic communications (cellular) networks and facilities thereto .”
It is clear from the minutes of the meeting that 11 councilors voted “for”, 1 was “against” and six abstained.
The first municipality in our country to ban the construction of a 5G network was Balchik. A 1-year moratorium on such facilities was imposed at a local parliament session on September 30th. The ban was imposed due to the subscription of 183 local citizens, who do not want the network due to fears that it could harm human health and insist that research be done before the introduction.
