I run Cable at my house when I can

Considering that cell phones are enormously more powerful that wifi I call bogus on this. Well not exactly. Let me say that if wifi is a problem, cell phones are a catastrophe. Just imagine the power difference between going 100' vs. going 1/2 mile.

I'm not at all comfortable with something just because I cant see or touch it. I run cat5 over wifi at my house. for the next few years I won't because I am renting, but soon enough I will be back on the cable. Its an unnecessary risk.

wifi an cell phone got nothing on the Sun
ever get a sunburn? thats really a radiation burn

the effects of man made non-ionizing radiation have NOTHING on the amount of ionizing radiation we get just going out side on a clear day or flying on a plane

you get a bigger dose of radiation from one round of medical imaging then youll get from wi-fi, TV, Radio, Satellite and cell phones over your whole life

and yes if your worried about wi-fi did you know your getting more Ghz range EMF from satellites every time you go out your front door?

IF wi-fi is threat then so are EVERY communications sat that uses any thing from L to Ka band

The only reason anyone needs to run cable instead of using Wi-Fi is when you absolutely need an uninterrupted connection with low latency such as for gaming or VOIP/Skype.

For everything else such as Web surfing, email, YouTube and Netflix streaming, Wi-Fi will work perfectly fine with no added health risks.

Cable however can be EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS, especially if you don't install it properly and someone trips over it.

Actually, the UVB that causes sunburn is also non-ionizing. The boundary between ionizing and non-ionizing radiation is well in the UVC area which is filtered out of sunlight by the atmosphere. Sunburn is one example of direct DNA damage by non-ionizing radiation. There are studies that show cell phone radiation also has an effect on DNA (although obviously not as severe).

I have a wireless ISP. My internet access arrives in the house via a CAT-% cable from the external antenna/modem/router. As it comes into the house it is directly connected to a powerful wireless access point, thus, the house is online 24/7. All computer activity, nedia activity, VoIP communications, TV and audio activity is available anywhere within the house (or actually the block that I live on) in a wireless configuration. My wireless ISP is not sattelite provided. I am within the "footprint" provided by microwave dishes mounted atop Mt Dyer; a mountain that is within a few miles of my residence. My ISP uses no caps or thottling where my access is concerned. Due to the "footprint" involved, this whole town is a healthy wireless hot spot. THAT is the way that it should be... everywhere.
