AT&T, Verizon rolls out C-band 5G network expansion
After a six-week delay, AT&T and Verizon Wireless have finally rolled out their C-band in 5G network.
But it seems like the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and some airlines are unhappy with the rollout. In fact, there have been a number of flight cancellations from international airlines. Some of the airlines that cancelled flights in line with the new 5G wireless internet technology rollout include Emirates, Air India, Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways, and many others.
AT&T and Verizon, however, have created buffer zones in 50 airports to ease the concerns of the FAA and the airlines. Hopefully, airline companies will ease and be convinced that the network does not cause any potential problems.
AT&T’s rollout is live in “limited parts” of eight metro cities: Chicago, Austin, Detroit, Houston, and Dallas-Fort Worth.
