AT&T announced Tuesday that it is delaying activation of 5G on some towers close to airports around the country after some warned of potential severe consequences. 

As reported by Just the News, the Federal Aviation Administration warned that the rollout could interfere with instruments used by modern aircraft, therefore forcing airlines to cancel flights. 
AT&T said it will work with the aviation industry and the Federal Aviation Administration for further guidance. 

“At our sole discretion we have voluntarily agreed to temporarily defer turning on a limited number of towers around certain airport runways as we continue to work with the aviation industry and the FAA to provide further information about our 5G deployment, since they have not utilized the two years they’ve had to responsibly plan for this deployment,” the company said. 
“We are frustrated by the FAA’s inability to do what nearly 40 countries have done, which is to safely deploy 5G technology without disrupting aviation services, and we urge it to do so in a timely manner,” a spokeswoman said. 
AT&T will continue launching 5G services in all other initially planned locations.
