Statement on the Federal Aviation Administration's Agreement With Service Providers on the Deployment of 5G Cellular Communications Technology
My administration is committed to rapid 5G deployment, while minimizing disruptions to air operations and continuing to maintain the world's safest airspace. Last night's agreement is a significant step in the right direction, and we're grateful to all parties for their cooperation and good faith. This agreement ensures that there will be no disruptions to air operations over the next 2 weeks and puts us on track to substantially reduce disruptions to air operations when AT&T and Verizon launch 5G on January 19. For the last few months, my administration has been convening technical experts at the FAA, the FCC, and from the wireless and aviation industries to discuss a solution that allows the expansion of 5G and aviation to safely coexist, and I am pleased those efforts helped produce yesterday's agreement. I want to thank Secretary Buttigieg, FAA Administrator Dickson, and FCC Chair Rosenworcel, as well as AT&T and Verizon and airline industry leaders, for their tireless work to ensure that the expansion of 5G and aviation can safely coexist.
