Reportedly, telecom giants AT&T and Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ) have agreed to adopt new precautionary measures to address air safety concerns raised from the planned use of C-Band spectrum for 5G wireless. The aviation industry and Federal Aviation Administration raised concerns about potential interference caused by the 5G deployment with sensitive aircraft electronics like radio altimeters.
Earlier this month, AT&T and Verizon agreed to delay the commercial launch of C-band wireless service until Jan. 5 after the FAA issued a bulletin on Nov. 2 warning that action may be needed to address the potential risk caused by the 5G deployment.
AT&T and Verizon informed that the commitments would expire on July 6 unless credible evidence was discovered that real-world interference would occur if the mitigations were relaxed. However, the wireless groups argue that there have been no C-Band aviation safety issues in other countries using the spectrum.
