The Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) has proposed that the "Penang Free WiFi" project be stopped until the state government can prove that it is safe.
"The state government should take the precautionary approach in this matter and stop the project as it may affect the health of all Penang residents," he said in a statement today.
Mohamed Idris said CAP was worried about the possible health effects of the project which was launched recently.
He said the project would create a Wi-Fi fog over the state and no one would be able to escape its effects.
"These concerns will be multiplied many folds if there are to be more of these towers and masts."
