Telecommunications companies worldwide, with the support of governments, are poised within the next two years to roll out the fifth-generation wireless network (5G). This is set to deliver what is acknowledged to be unprecedented societal change on a global scale.

The Israeli Knesset has just backed a bill requiring all mobile phones to carry a health warning.
