It comes after the FAA and pilots unions said they may have to cancel thousands of flights if the cellular signals near airports were switched on.

The tech was due to launch around the US this Wednesday.

That’s been the deadline for the past two years.

The networks are said to have 500 towers that some experts think are too close to 88 airports across the country.

Most of the concerns regard how the tech effects radar altimeters that pilots use when trying to land.
