The US is looking for a new 5G delay to investigate plane interference.

US regulators have urged AT&T and Verizon to postpone their already postponed 5G network rollouts for up to two weeks due to concerns about interference with critical flight safety equipment.

The two companies stated they are looking into the request on Saturday.

The launch of high-speed mobile broadband technology in the United States was originally scheduled for December 5, but was postponed to January 5 after aerospace giants Airbus and Boeing expressed worries about potential interference with planes’ altitude-measuring equipment.

In a letter issued Friday to AT&T and Verizon, two of the country’s largest telecommunications companies, US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and the head of the Federal Aviation Administration, Steve Dickson, requested for the latest delay.
