Biden praises the suspension of the fifth generation technology operation near...


AT&T and Verizon have agreed to delay operating some wireless communication towers near major airports to avoid any disruption to US flights, as part of the deployment of fifth generation technology that will provide tens of millions of people with faster internet services.
US President Joe Biden praised the agreement, saying that it would “avoid any potential disruptions to passenger travel, freight operations, and our economic recovery, while at the same time allowing the deployment of more than 90 percent of wireless communication towers as scheduled.”
The Federal Aviation Administration published an updated list late on Tuesday of the airports that planes can use, and it includes major airports, such as John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia in New York, Los Angeles, O’Hare and Midway in Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.
Sources told Reuters that Verizon will not temporarily operate about 500 communications towers near airports, which is less than ten percent of the planned operation, while airlines and the US administration are working on a permanent solution, according to informed sources.
It did not provide details of the agreement, including the delay period.
This came as global airlines rushed to modify or cancel flights to the United States ahead of the deployment of fifth generation technology, on Wednesday, which raised safety concerns.
The Aviation Administration warned that any possible interference with this technology may affect the altitude reading, which plays an important role in landing some aircraft during bad weather.
