AT&T, Verizon denies FAA request to postpone 5G launch




AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. rejected a request from federal transportation officials to voluntarily postpone the launch of new 5G wireless services, and extended a settlement that could lead to potentially disruptive flight restrictions in the U.S. as soon as this week.

On Sunday, the mobile operators offered a counter-proposal that would further dampen the power of their new 5G service for six months to match the limits imposed by regulators in France, and give US authorities more time to study the effect of stronger signals on air traffic. The companies had planned to launch the service on Wednesday in as many as 46 of the country’s largest metropolitan areas.
