BULGARIA - Mezdra banned the 5G network - BNR, 1st January 2021 (auto-translation). Mezdra became the second Bulgarian municipality after Balchik to ban the 5G network.
According to the decision of the Municipal Council, taken at the end of last year, in 2021 in the municipality of Mezdra is prohibited the deployment, use, maintenance, and development of 5G network and its facilities.
The decision was voted on a proposal by Radoslav Marinov, a municipal councilor from the local coalition of the Ataka party and the Bulgarian Spring movement for radical change. The proposal was supported by a civil petition stating that the development of mobile networks of the new 4G and 5G generation can turn a person into an antenna transmitter, as well as that the use of mobile phones has repeatedly saturated the electromagnetic background, which affects human and animal health, atmospheric processes, and environmental pollution.
The subscription recommends that mobile operators reduce the prices of services and select devices individually for each customer.
