Is Wi-Fi internet bad for the environment?

    No, there is no evidence to suggest that Wi-Fi internet is bad for the environment. Some people have expressed concern that it could have negative impacts on human health, but because the signal for wireless connections are so weak and only emitted in spurts, there is no danger of the radiation raising body temperatures and damaging tissue. Quoted from the article, “typical exposures from wi-fi are around 20 millionths of the international guideline levels of exposure to radiation,” while talking on a cell phone exposes the user to up to 50 percent of guideline levels.

    I would just say that the data centers that provide the wi-fi can be bad for the environment. The wi-fi itself is not necessarily bad, though.
