A lot of nonsense

Re: Health warning alert about Tui Cable site

Samoa Observer, you should be ashamed for giving this technology expert so many column inches.

Was it a slow news day or is this a new section for the crazy old man in the Village Voice?

Fibre optic cables such as this emit nothing. They are full of light waves bouncing along inside a piece of glass as thin as a hair. The only power in these cables is there to power very small but efficient repeaters to boost the light signal.

I think this expert is mistaking this modern communications cable for a high capacity power cable that indeed does emit invisible waves most of us done need or understand.

Roll on Tui, deliver cheap and fast internet to Samoa, it is such a shame you share your name with our P.M.
