AT&T and Verizon will roll out more 5G services near airports

AT&T and Verizon Inc. said it will slowly lift self-imposed limits on expanding its 5G network near select airports over the coming year. Businesses and regulators said the timetable would give airlines enough time to upgrade planes, while a major group of airline lobbyists called the new timetable reckless.

Earlier this year, wireless companies agreed to delay the launch of part of their fifth-generation wireless service near major airports, while regulators considered concerns that new 5G wireless signals could confuse certain sensors on board aircraft. The standstill deal, which followed a last-minute scramble that caused flight cancellations in January, was due to expire on July 5.
