Safety

Keeping you connected responsibly

We want to set the record straight with facts that address some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding 5G and radio frequency (RF) emissions.

Radio waves in our daily lives

Radio waves occupy a part of the electromagnetic spectrum with the lowest frequency portion: a range of electric and magnetic waves of different lengths that travel at the speed of light. Other parts of the spectrum include visible light and x-rays. The longer the wavelength, the lower the frequency.

What does AT&T say?

We take everyone’s health and safety seriously. That is why we want to acknowledge questions you may have about radio frequency (RF).

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the federal agency responsible for regulating wireless carriers’ RF emissions, has adopted conservative, science-based RF exposure limits for carriers. These limits apply to all wireless carriers and technologies, including current 4G and new 5G services and devices.

AT&T’s wireless sites, including small cells and 5G, comply with these FCC rigorous safety standards. And, RF exposure to the general public at AT&T’s small cell sites is as up to 200 times below the FCC limits. Our customers are our families, our friends, our neighbors and our co-workers. Keeping them connected in a responsible way is our top priority.
