Panama’s telecommunications concession companies have not yet asked for permission to introduce the high tech fifth generation network, known as 5G says  The Public Services Authority (ASEP)

Nor has it been authorized by the entity to deploy towers, antennas, and equipment in the Republic of Panama.

According to an ASEP statement, " we want to send a message of tranquility to the public reiterating that 5G wireless networks are not operating in an  uthorized

manner in Panama ."

They add that the clarification is given because  of publications and comments made about the apprehensions and fears of the public locally and internationally regarding the deployment of this network.

A Study Group on 5G has been created in ASEP” that will be vigilant in the techno-scientific development of this type of technology and thus keep users informed”.

Panama, as part of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) , that is working on the identification of new harmonized frequency bands worldwide to guarantee that any technological development of 5G is carried out respecting environmental security and human health.

This technology enables consumers to have higher data rates and promises superior capacity, increasing the efficiency of networks, which is being designed to support future service

Agencies such as ASEP and IYU have no credibility. The standard line of hogwash fed to the public is always that they are vigilant, keep users informed of the truth, and guarantee that any technological development of 5G is carried out respecting environmental security and human health. The first truth we need is to know who funds these gatekeepers of our health? Second truth is who conducts the investigations of possible damage? In both cases, i expect it is the very industries that will profit from the installation of their products. And they ALWAYS decide that the 'teeny little bit of possible damage is not life threatening, at least not in the short term', which is how long their studies last. We end up with microwaves in our ears, gmo foods, carcinogens, mining waste, endocrine disrupting plastics, manufacturing wastes, and wayward chemicals in our medicines, hygiene products, food, water, and soil, while being told none of them is life threatening. As a simple statement that is not true, but when all the simple statements are combined, we are under assault a little bit every time we eat, breath the fumes of passing cars, drink, talk on a phone, or treat illness, and just look at the statistics! Our life expectancy IS being not just threatened but affected, our health is declining, our immune systems are collapsing, unheard of illnesses make us weak, sick, disoriented and disconnected, we are becoming infertile, our children are unable to integrate in society, we alienate ourselves and others, our IQs are going down, and we simply cannot think clearly. The diversity of our environment is being diminished, bees are disappearing, the habitat of animals that require some separation from us is being destroyed, our soil is dead, and nothing in our lifestyles is sustainable. 5G's higher data rates, superior capacity, and increased efficiency can not justify adding another assault on our health, or our environment.

Please ASEP and Panama wait on this .there is talk about it being bad for your health and the locals live on their phones day and night .panamanians are not a group of people that do anything in a hurry so if the phone is a little slower on g3/4 does it really hurt anything

Hard to understand the benefits to any Panamanians when the reach of 5G by Huawei is about 150 Meters at 60 GHz. So what is it really about. Rolled out in Quito Ecuador to serve 4,500 facial recognition cameras. Seems to correlate very well with their virus outbreak. And yes it was Huawei. So the Chinese interest is very evident. The Director of the WHO is complimented by China an Ethiopian non doctor with strong ties to terrorism. Hmmmmm. Really got to trust these people. Best to do your own research and please not on Google or Chrome. Pure censorship and spyware.
