5G rollout delayed over fears it may cause ‘major disruptions’ for AIRCRAFT

Verizon and AT&T have been forced to delay their full 5G rollout as the Federal Aviation Administration warns that expanding into a certain bandwidth will seriously interfere with bands used for aircraft safety.

The planned December 5 rollout across C-band frequencies, will be delayed until at least January 5. The companies are hoping to work with the FAA to address its concerns regarding potential interference with cockpit safety equipment that also uses the C band.
