A UK High Court judge has blocked a crowdfunded legal case attempting to stop the rollout of the 5G network, but the group behind the lawsuit has pledged to go ahead with their efforts to obtain a judicial review, the BBC reports. The news outlet cited Mrs Justice Foster as saying that “the real issue is that the claimants disagree with a large body of international opinion as to the safety of 5G”. The judge added that decisions about the rollout of the 5G technology were for the government and that the technical advice it had received "does not support the claimants' concerns". The government's defence, in turn, referred to advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Public Health England arguing that the 5G network is safe. Foster wrote in her judgement that “the defendants have set out their (rational, scientifically based) view that there is nothing fundamentally different about the physical characteristics of the radio signals produced by 5G compared to those … [Read more...] about ‘Out of Time’: UK Judge Blocks Anti-5G Activists’ Legal Action

Canada's auction of 3500 MHz spectrum, which is key for next generation 5G networks, generated a record C$8.9 billion ($7.2 billion), with the country's three dominant telecom companies accounting for more than 80% of the amount raised. Out of 1,504 available licenses, 1,495 were awarded to 15 Canadian companies, including 757 licenses to small and regional providers, Innovation Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said in a statement on Thursday. The results would boost competition, he added, a reference to Ottawa's push to open up a market dominated by BCE Inc, Telus Corp and Rogers Communications Inc , known as the big three.

Recently, a similar Russia-sourced attack struck a large group of companies via software used by IT departments to manage remote computers. But those attacks are about money, not about power or information, and a little-known Chinese technology company, Tuya , is on the verge of being able to blow Russian hackers away. Tuya, a nominally private Chinese company backed by WeChat megalith and Beijing-government crony Tencent , takes “things” and makes them “smart” by connecting them to the internet, a function known as “platform as a service,” or PaaS. Tuya dominates the global “internet of things” (IoT)/PaaS market. It operates from Hangzhou City, China, and its hardware, software, cloud services and applications power more than 100 million “smart” devices in 1,100 product categories in 220 countries — including consumer products, surveillance equipment, and manufacturing and supply chain … [Read more...] about Tuya may be the China threat that beats Russia’s ransomware attacks
