4:28 pm
putting pressure on government officials and cellular company saying that the rollout of five g could cause chaos for flyers and it seems that pressure is working because both verizon and at and t say they'll delay turning on a limited number of towers around certain airport runways. a tnt says. we are frustrated by the f a's inability to do what nearly 40 countries have done, which is to safely deploy five g technology without disrupting aviation services. and we urge it to do so in a timely manner. both companies say they're launching towers everywhere else in the country as planned on wednesday , with the exception of a limited number of towers near airports. the airlines say the five g signal would interfere with critical safety instruments on planes and the rollout could cause mass flight cancelations as well as a suspension of cargo flights. that means that goods aren't moving around as as quickly and effectively as they need to in order to not have
4:29 pm
supply chain disruptions. so this is something that we are very focused on. we've been closely engaged on and we want to avoid that and prevent it. talks continue between the faa, the fcc cell phone companies and the airlines as wednesday's five g rollout deadline gets closer in chicago grady tremble fox business all right. there's a lot to sort out here for more on this five g dispute. we're joined now by the insurer editor at large at cnet. ian always appreciate you taking the time. let's first start with sort of an explainer here. how is it that this five g. this new five g technology, the c band spectrum five g technology. how can those signals potentially affect aircraft or airport operations? that is the multi billion dollar question that very few people seem to have an answer for what it turns out is that in theory, the ultimate ear's, which are the devices that tell the airplanes how far
4:30 pm
they are off the ground, kind of an important feature of an airplane that apparently they work in the same similar, not the same, but it's similar radio band. as these new c band five g wireless networks. now these five g networks are a little different from the ones most of us are using today. this c band stuff is kind of another flavor of it. if you think of it in terms of you know, starbursts, right? this is a slightly better flavor. maybe the strawberry and the result is that you get much better signal. supposedly it works a lot further, so it doesn't need as many towers and stuff like that. but, as you pointed out, the airline industry is very worried that this is going to affect their instruments and has been trying to block it. all right. so when the airline ceos are warning about what they say could be catastrophic consequences for air travel. what exactly are we talking about? in terms of the consequences are we are we talking about flight delays?
4:31 pm
cancelations are we also talking about pilots actually having difficulty taking off and landing aircraft from certain airports? right so catastrophic and airplanes are never two words. you want to hear it together and to be clear the airline industry has been very, very aware and been saying very carefully that they will shut down flights before they ever make anything possibly unsafe. so what we've been hearing is that they were planning to actually shut down. a number of routes shut down a number of airplanes going to into and out of some different airports. they didn't say which ones. but it turns out that now with this agreement that the white house helped to broker that's not going to be a problem, at least until 18 t and verizon and the airlines come to an agreement about how they're going to handle all of this, all right? and so that that is the question. obviously moving forward here. things have been sort of put on pause here. the rollout of the new five g
4:32 pm
technology has been delayed, at least around certain airports. so how does this all get worked out moving forward? what? what are some of the potential solutions here? what steps might be taken to roll out the five g technology. without disrupting air travel. you know what's really interesting is that this whole thing has been kind of a mud fight and public and we don't typically see that happening. it's usually behind closed doors. the reality is these two seem very far apart, right. the airlines say that they're very worried and the carriers 18 team, verizon say. we already have research and studies. we have examples in europe over 40 countries over to your using this flavor of five g and there haven't been problems . so i have a feeling that having talked to a number of people in the transportation world that they are very worried about when the tech industry moves. it likes to move fast and break things as we all know, and they don't want that to be an airplane, so i think they're just trying to make sure
4:33 pm
everything's tip top before they agree. alright finally, before we wrap up here, give us a sense of why this new five g service matters. how is this going to change our online experience moving forward? yeah i mean, five. g generally is supposed to be much faster and more reliable right of far more than just another g but with this specific type of five g, the c band that we're talking about. it is supposed to kind of deliver a lot of the promises that we've been given the fact that it will work a lot faster right now are are tests that scene that have been it's working, okay, but it's not really life changing. and this type of thing, which was a planned rollout. they had planned to do this over time. they this is supposed to help to really make it a lot better. all right. well, we wait to see how this all gets sorted out between the big carriers and the airlines here. always appreciate your time. and your insight, ian, sure, editor at large at cnet, thanks for doing it. thanks for having me.
