It seems like you can’t go five minutes without reading or hearing about another play from corporate entities to secure their profits at our collective expense, and this latest one is a doozy.
The telecom industry is quietly and successfully lobbying for, and passing, state bills all across the country that deregulate the meager laws that currently dissuade these giants like Verizon and AT&T from putting up intrusive and medically dangerous equipment all over every square inch of America.
If you’re one of the handful of companies that get to control data transmission in the US, life is good. All you have to do these days is get your lobby money into the right greasy palms, and your laws will be made, regardless of the negative effect(s) it will have on the populace.
A perfect case in point is the telecommunications industry, which has been successfully lobbying the FCC and 17 states so far in order to pass legislation that deregulates the oversight needed to keep these companies from putting up noisy, bulky, and potentially harmful equipment in the name of rolling out the new 5G and “small cell” tower technologies.
In short, an abundance of small cell sites will eventually make up the backbone of the new and stronger 5G (G for gigahertz) signals the telecom industry will start rolling out this year.
A small cell site is named as such, in small part, because it is designed to replace older, larger macro-cell towers that we already see all over. It’s also somewhat of a misnomer because the towers and equipment associated with them can still be quite large, noisy, and takes away from the aesthetics of the area. The main reason they’re called small cell sites is because the signal is designed to go only a small distance (10 meters to a few kilometers) away, so the name can mislead the public if people do not understand their true purpose.
5G is simply the next installment of the newest, stronger signal technology. For example, we started cellular service with 3G, moved up to 4G, then LTE, and now 5G is within sight.
And while on paper this seems like the next logical step in our wireless progress, these technologies do come at a cost.
The new bills being passed have really opened the floodgates for the telecom industry. They are now allowed to place these “small” cells everywhere you can possibly think of in the public’s right-of-way. This means bus stations, parks, libraries, next to schools and people’s houses, hospitals, and everywhere else you can imagine.
Along with all of these new small sites will be an even greater influx of harmful radiation that can cause problems with sleep, headaches, and even prevent DNA from being repaired by the body at night.
There will be noisy cooling fans, large lead batteries, electric meters, giant metal boxes, and of course the towers they’re installed on; and because of these bills, the municipalities will have no legal recourse to stop them from putting them everywhere.
The plans in place currently call for the small cell tower to human ratio to become 1 in 500. This means that the densification of the towers and signals will be beefed up significantly, which will expose all of us to this wanted radiation 24/7 without anywhere to escape it.
Unfortunately, we cannot force our lawmakers to protect their constituency, but we can call their offices and make our voices heard.
If we do not hold our politicians and representatives accountable, they’ll continue to fill their campaign coffers and personal bank accounts with dirty money, and sell us down the river in the process.

Music is a necessity for me. My i-pod needs protection also, as my info is on it as well as my music. This sleeve fits it perfect.
I had to upgrade my phone and was extremely concerned with the 5G capabilities. This bag completely blocks ALL signals. I place my phone in my bag when I go to bed at night! Would 100% not only purchase again, but would purchase for friends/family, too! 5 stars!!
Perfect for blocking signals and also a day on the boat. 10/10 definitely recommend.
A must have for anyone whom privacy is important 5 star product
Thank you guys for supporting the fight for our right to privacy and combating mass surve.. Keep up the good work, the bag is amazing quality and I love the privacy stickers. Thanks a lot SLNT
I bought 4 Faraday Silent Pockets after reading about car fob venerability. I feel must more secure now. Get yours today to stop thieves from duplicating your fob’s signal anywhere!
I absolutely love my backpack I purchased… we need to protect our privacy now more than ever. I don’t travel without this & neither should you 😎
This is definitely a great bag for your phone. It sure seems to block everything I have tried to throw at it. Will be purchasing more!
Seems to work as expected. Hope to never do a hard test. Feel my backups are now well protected.
I purchased the SLNT pocket that an iphone 11 with an Otter Box fits in. The quality of the finished product is HIGH. I'm not addicted to my phone, so this allows me to place the phone in the pocket before traveling about daily without dropping digital crumbs along the way that could be used to reverse engineer my personal movements, locations and destinations with greater ease. I value my privacy due it being a fundamental human right despite what any judge or agency claims to the contrary.
I was very pleased to realize that this particular SLNT fits into my back pants pocket!!! The width is 'just right'. Now that's attention to detail. This is my 3rd SLNT and I recommend them to a lot of folks. Most have never heard of such a product, let alone the reason to have one and use it.
To anyone considering these products, as others have said, just get it! We live in an age where we need it. Location tracking is digital stalking. I really appreciate that some dirtbag won't be able to pull info out of my device either. Thank You SLNT, nice job.
Excellent quality, handsome, fit well, I like them and use them. Good to have protection.
Live in a condominium area. Thank you for giving me back my privacy!!
My laptop is now waterproof, padded and protected from solar flares, EMP's, hackers and trackers.
And it looks good too
4-5 starts.... well made, great function ...not only do I feel like I've helped secure my privacy but when I place the phone in the pocket I am able to disconnect from tech and have quiet private time with less stress and fewer distractions. Psychologically its been a great aid to me.
The Silent Pocket is a fantastic accessory, I am sleeping better with lack of EMF in the room and knowing that my privacy is literally in my hands.
Shipping took very little time, very happy!
