US officials ask AT&T, Verizon to delay 5G maybe for another two weeks Over safety concerns

US Transportation officials Secretary Pete Buttigieg and FAA Administrator Steve Dickson sent a letter to the CEOs of AT&T and Verizon to delay the distribution of new 5G deployments so Federal Aviation Administration can have more time where it interferes with airlines.

“We ask that your companies continue to pause introducing commercial C-Band service for an additional short period of no more than two weeks beyond the currently scheduled deployment date of January 5,” the letter says.

This delay is not new, AT&T and Verizon want to start earlier this year but delayed these deployments over US regulators and then planned to start on January 5th.

Both telecommunications are unhappy with this delay, the companies accused aerospace of deployment hostage unless they covered altimeter upgrades.

Verizon also went in on the airline industry, telling Insider, “This industry which got a $54 billion taxpayer-funded, government bail out over the past couple years clearly has much bigger issues to worry about.”
