Prioritise the use of safe, hardwired phones and internet connections for your home and business
Connecting to the internet with inexpensive ethernet cables and using a phone with a cord whenever possible helps to protect your health and is better for the environment (as using hardwired data transmission is more energy efficient plus using the copper or fibre system also helps to reduce the proliferation of cellular phone towers).
There is information about different telecommunications choices at this link: https://www.5g.org.nz/safer-technology/
