To allay FAA worries about mid-band 5G waves potentially interfering with aviation equipment, AT&T and Verizon have decided to reduce the energy emissions of their 5G base stations.

In response to concerns raised by the Federal Aviation Administration about mid-band 5G potentially interfering with aircraft radio altimeters, AT&T and Verizon have chosen to limit the amount of energy emitted by their 5G cell towers. Due to difficulties identified by the FAA, AT&T and Verizon pushed delayed the debut of their mid-band 5G until January 5, 2022.

The FAA isn’t the only aviation regulator concerned about low-frequency 5G waves interfering with aircraft equipment, with the Canadian Department of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development (ISED) banning exterior 5G antennas near 26 airports.

The carriers explained their decision by saying that they are examining research from radio altimeter manufacturers and, in the meanwhile, are taking “extra precautions to reduce energy coming from 5G base stations – both statewide and to a larger extent surrounding public airports and heliports.” Also Read: 5G Jio Google will be launched Latest Jio Smartphone in 2021, The price could be around Rs 3,500
