Verizon and AT&T have postponed the introduction of 5G near several airports

By: April Carson

New 5G cell sites are nearly impossible for the general public to avoid because they can be much taller than existing cell towers. Residents in cities across the nation, from Indianapolis and Hoboken to Los Angeles and Atlanta, have complained about their presence and petitioned city officials to restrict or block them.

Verizon and AT&T are delaying the deployment of 5G near U.S. airports, including Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, according to an individual familiar with the situation.

The companies are concerned about the impact on safety, according to the individual.

AT&T declined comment. A Verizon spokesman said the company will use existing 4G cell sites "in the meantime."

The concerns come as both carriers are scheduled to turn on commercial 5G service at these airports this year, an important milestone in their road maps to build out 5G networks.

But the carriers are worried that if they roll out 5G near these airports, it would be difficult to contain radio waves and their negative effects, according to the individual.

Airline executives from American, United, Delta, and seven other major carriers warned that if the country's 5G rollout continued as planned, there would be "significant" disruptions in the aviation system.

The use of the frequency for 5G may cause problems with aircraft's radio altimeters, which are used by pilots to assess the distance between the plane and ground in order to land.

United State airline executives penned a letter to government officials Monday, urging them not to install 5G within two miles of runways at certain airports. The note was signed by executives from American Airlines, United Airlines, and seven other major carriers.

"The planned installations could result in a significant number of aircraft passes being blocked and reduced coverage at airports," the letter said. The airline execs said they fear 5G installations "could ultimately lead to capacity issues or disruptions for surface transportation at these airports during peak times."

“We can't keep waiting,” the former vice president said. “It's time for our administration to take action to address this urgent threat that is facing us all as a nation.” President Biden added that his team has been in contact with nonstop with wireless carriers, airlines, and aviation equipment manufacturers about finding a path forward for 5G deployment and aviation safety co-existence.

"Many of us in the airline industry believe that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has taken a number of steps to enable 5G deployment," said Nicholas E. Calio, president and chief executive of Airlines 4 America, an industry trade group representing United, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines . "However, there remains substantial concern over the potential for 5G emissions in close proximity to airports.”
