5G Could Cause Flight Disruptions in the US on July 1st

The push to enhance 5G networks has been a source of debate and delays between the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) due to concerns about potential interference with the radio waves used by aircraft to gauge altitude. The original plan to increase network power was scheduled for January 2022 but was subsequently delayed until July 2022. Finally, a compromise was reached between the FCC and the FAA, setting the deadline for July 1st, 2023.
