‘Catastrophic’ crisis? Airlines warn 5G technology might render aircrafts unusable | DW News ctm magazine

Major US airlines are warning of an impending ‘catastrophic’ crisis when a new 5G service is deployed by telecom giants AT&T and Verizon on Wednesday. American Airlines, Delta, United, and Southwest Airlines all say the new technology might affect flight instruments and render many aircraft unusable. That could lead to the grounding of tens of thousands of flights. The telecoms firms say they’ve created buffer zones around airports – but carriers warn that it wont be enough.

    Me, habitually using 5G to watch cat videos as we approach the runway: huh?

  • William Watitwa on January 18, 2022

    yet other nations are using it , havent noticed planes going down or being grounded.

  • lopezb on January 18, 2022

    How is this possible?

  • Emperor Jahrome on January 18, 2022

    Just sounds like another bunch of nonsense to try and distance the masses and fool the public into being afriad to travel abroad as another form of control and restricting human contact.
    Sorry someone had to say it considering recent events in the last three years can you blame us?.

  • Freddie Nerkury on January 18, 2022

    Might ? It will or wont. Surely they know by now ??? This is everything that's wring with a woke world.

  • MakeDredd2 on January 18, 2022

    5G will be a new military weapon to shoot down foreign aircrafts.

  • Michael Harto on January 18, 2022

    But 5G coverage is so short.. you just need to not build any 5G towers near airport.

  • Voxabonable on January 18, 2022

    China has 5G like all over, if their planes were falling from the sky you guys would have made a thousand reports in half a day already.

  • Matus Knives on January 18, 2022

    Lol 😂

  • Day b on January 18, 2022

    5G has nothing to do with airlines waste oppose

  • Karlis Treijs on January 18, 2022

    The heck is that! 😄
    Such BS. If there was ever problems they already knew about them long time ago. Why didn’t they say anything?

  • Gerarda Cronin on January 18, 2022

    The thumbnail shows a NorthWest Airlines plane. That airline merged with Delta in 2010. So DW News is only 12 years behind!

  • Ryan Chen on January 18, 2022

    Why only the US? How did all the other countries with 5G solve this???

  • Summerland on January 18, 2022

    The airlines until Covid had been making yearly record profits and banked trillions of dollars are now looking for that corporate welfare.

  • horserous on January 18, 2022

    Who was it that sold the spectrum?

  • Chan Xavier on January 18, 2022

    We have 5G in the uk for awhile now, planes are still flying and not falling out if the sky.

  • megablast1988 on January 18, 2022

    Europe has had 5G for a while, nothing happens…so how come US is making a fuss?

  • Paweł Frydlewicz on January 18, 2022

    USA 5G technology better then Huawei maby similar to 4G plus but Huawei is make 6G yes they are but it will not need any new hardware really if you buy 5G from USA you will not be able to apply 6G Ohhh but what is de different between 5G and 6G i will explain only two of them but the most important (1) speed and respond 10 x of 5G and less than 1 ms (2) bills for energy even 1/10 of price of 5G exploration, but what about safety that is the funniest Unbreakable but maby China will be able never ever possibe its all about software (according to safety). Be smart chose Huawei oh i would forget energy emissions also 1/10 of 5G.

  • LL on January 18, 2022

    They shouldn't have banned Huawei

  • Patrick Star on January 18, 2022

    sucks to be them

  • Eka on January 18, 2022

    So Far China already put 5G Network covered most of China and yet we never heard this kind of Problem.

  • Taka Otsu on January 18, 2022

    Such paranoia. It reminds me of Y2K.

  • höpö nasu on January 18, 2022

    5 G is weapon – should not be used at all.

  • Mole Js on January 18, 2022

    Not much a problem for other countries because they gave upgraded equipment .As for US ,just wait like Boeing 737,when accident happen,they can sue,blame AT&T.while AT&T blame old equipment of fight tower control by FAA.All these can circle around to the government..Case closed until people die.This is a great country claims to has the best..

  • Koach 777 on January 18, 2022

    I mean American infrastructure failure? How has this not been researched until now? Honestly this sounds super suspicious. I actually doubt there’s anything wrong with 5G, but an American attempt to delay further development by other countries.

  • Timpaloempa on January 18, 2022

    Maybe new airplane 😁

  • Jonn Faustino on January 18, 2022

    Perhaps the US should have gone with Chinese technology because China has been enjoying the largest 5G network in the world for years without any problems! 🤔😂

  • Commander [REDACTED] on January 18, 2022

    American problems. Like literally an American problem. no one has this issue.

  • doyouknow12109 on January 18, 2022

    Yeah, what kind of a non sense.

  • Best Quotes on January 18, 2022

    Another tactic by the US to shows china's technology inferior

  • Captain Iohannes Killyloris on January 18, 2022

    5G helps and enables passenger carrying autonomous drones, this might have something to do with why they're being so pissy.

  • G Liang on January 18, 2022

    To be precise, this only applies to the US 5G: the US 5G frequencies overlap with the aviation frequencies.
