15 European Union member states urged the European Commission (EC) to create a long-term strategy to counteract the spread of misleading information related to 5G networks. They also want to highlight the environmental and digital transformation benefits of the technology.

The nations urged EC VP Margrethe Vestager, Internal Market Commssioner Thierry Breton and Vera Jourova, VP for Values and Transparency, to deliver an active, long-term and systemic approach to combatting disinformation regarding electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and 5G. They also advocated for an awareness campaign on risks related to human health, offering trusted information based on scientific research. And there was a call for debate on creating trust among citizens regarding the actions towards continuous development of the mobile networks.

They have noted that acts of vandalism against network infrastructure and disinformation were not only a threat to their economies, but hinder also the ability for the European Union to meet its 5G goals. The call came from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Sweden.
