US authorities asked major telecoms operators to hold off on their planned rollout of 5G networks for a second time, after aerospace giants Airbus and Boeing voiced worries about potential interference. US requests delay on 5G rollout amid air traffic concerns.
The rollout and delay represent financial problems for two key US industries.
The telecom operators that paid billions for frequency licenses are eager to launch the commercial use of the 5G technology.
On the other hand, the aviation industry fears potential problems caused by frequency interference that could have widespread ripple effects.
