Balchik is the first municipality in Bulgaria to have banned the construction of a 5G network. On 30 September the local municipal council imposed a one-year moratorium on the construction of any such installations, Pro News Dobrich website reports.

The decision comes as a result of a petition in which the signees state they do not want a 5G network because of “health risks.”

The 183 people who signed the petition are demanding that studies are conducted before its introduction. There must be an official state position on the matter, and explanation should be provided what the benefits of 5G are for the population and for the economy, because people are confused and do not know whom to believe, the petitioners say.
