(Stocksak). The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), wants the U.S. telecommunications regulator to prevent some 5G C Band transmissions from smaller operators.

Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen said the agency wants the Federal Communications Commission to mandate voluntary mitigations that AT&T (NYSE:) and Verizon (NYSE:) agreed to earlier this year mandated for 19 smaller telecoms and other spectrum holders. Nolen wrote Friday in a previously unreported email that cited industry data to show that “aviation safety could be compromised if the U.S. government doesn’t codify certain additional operating limitations in the 5G CBand environment.”
