WASHINGTON– U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and the head of the Federal Aviation Administration( FAA) on Friday asked AT&T and Verizon Communications to postpone the prepared Jan. 5 intro of C-Band cordless service over air travel security issues.

In a letter Friday seen by Reuters, Buttigieg and FAA Administrator Steve Dickson asked AT&T Chief Executive John Stankey and Verizon Chief Executive Hans Vestberg for a hold-up of no greater than 2 weeks as part of a “proposition as a near-term service for advancing the co-existence of 5G release in the C-Band and safe flight operations.”

The air travel market and FAA have actually raised issues about prospective disturbance of 5G with delicate airplane electronic devices like radio altimeters that might interfere with flights. (Reporting by David Shepardson, Editing by Rosalba O’Brien)
