The FCC may be facing another nuclear-sized interference problem
Federal spectrum regulators at the FCC have come under increasing fire over concerns that 5G in C-band spectrum might interfere with aircraft radio altimeters.
Indeed, that issue has ballooned into a major national debate, with executives in the airline industry claiming a “catastrophic failure” in regulations, while wireless technology experts lament the government’s failure to “uphold its statutory responsibilities.”
But the C-band brouhaha isn’t the only high-stakes battle over spectrum interference at the FCC. The agency is facing another regulatory battle over the 6GHz band – one that apparently has nuclear ramifications.
