Marc Maouche specifies:

“Unlike 4G which broadcasts continuously, this new technology broadcasts according to demand only, which saves energy”.

And to add:

“I am delighted to launch Orange 5G today in Gisors with the Mayor. At Orange, our priority is to provide the best mobile speed. In addition to the 4G network, our customers, both individuals and businesses, will benefit from an unprecedented quality of service with the new 5G technology. For example, if you download a 4 GB high definition movie on your mobile: in 4G, it will take 13 minutes compared to 2 minutes in 5G”.

No danger?

In Normandy, Orange has already opened 5G in many towns in Eure: Evreux, Angerville-la-Campagne, Fauville, Vernon, Saint-Marcel, Beuzeville, Louviers, Le Vaudreuil, Incarville, Alizay, Gisors, Gravigny, Le Manoir, Le Torpt, Léry, Normanville, Pinterville, Val-de-Reuil.

Responding to the controversy, Marc Maouche wanted to reassure the residents of this new branch deployed in Gisors:

“No scientific study has demonstrated the harmfulness of its waves”.

A message supported by the mayor of Gisors, Alexandre Rassaertand his first assistant, Jose Cerqueira who rejoiced on Tuesday with a new technology which, according to them, allows “to increase the attractiveness of the territory, especially for businesses”.

City council controversy

The installation of the first 5G antenna on the water tower of Gisors was discussed at the last city council.

Although the theme was discussed at the end of the session, it gave rise to a tense pass of arms between the elected representatives of the majority and those of the opposition.

To start with Anthony Auger (various left) who did not fail to show his opposition during the debate.

“We cannot want to be more sober in energy and at the same time take part in a technological headlong rush… Today 5G and tomorrow 6G or even 7G”.

And the leader of the Gisorsian left to continue:

» Some municipalities are in 0G! (smiles from the assembly) 5G pylons consume three to four times more electricity than 4G. And all this for what purpose? Allow the fridge to dialogue with the TV or replace the services with digital? ”

So many words that made his right-wing colleagues jump likeElise Huin and Carole Lederle :

“Mr. Auger, this will make the region more attractive by bringing in companies… It will also facilitate telemedicine consultations”.
