A&T and Verizon have agreed to halt their 5G rollout amid concerns from airlines that the signals could confuse pilots.
The telecom giants reluctantly agreed that they would delay their C-band 5G technology rollout that was supposed to go ahead this week.
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.
