An upgrade to the USA’s 5G network has been delayed because of fears that it might interfere with aeroplanes –and cause them to crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration had warned about the danger, and both Airbus and Boeing had pushed the Biden administration to delay the 5G introduction.

Telephone companies had originally (and recently) vowed to carry on with the rollout. But the problem is that the airlines need to understand how 5G interferes with radio altimeters.

Does this matter?

Well, radio altimeters measure how high a plane is flying.
