5G roll-out in US suspended over aircraft safety fears

Most Popular

Verizon and AT&T halt work on the roll-out of 5G networks as the Federal Aviation Authority warns certain bandwiths will ‘seriously interfere’ with bands used for aircraft safety.

The roll-out is delayed for a month until 5 January 2022 for investigations to take place into the planned C-band frequencies and whether they interfere with cockpit safety equipment, which also uses the C-band.

US 5g roll-out suspended news

Both companies have been forced to tap into the C-band frequencies because competitor T-Mobile already owns a large portion of the mid-band frequencies which does not use C-band.

According to the FAA’s ‘Special Bulletin’ on the looming issue, While acknowledging there had not been any issues of ‘harmful interference’ with 5G in other countries, pilots were warned they must be ‘prepared for the possibility that interference from 5G transmitters and other technology could cause certain safety equipment to malfunction,’ and suggesting that being forced to fix the issues ‘could affect flight operations.’
