Thread regarding AT&T layoffs

Cancelling Flights To US Cities Over 5G Safety Fears

Emirates, Japan Airlines, Air India and All Nippon cancel Boeing 777 flights to some US cities over 5G safety fears despite AT&T and Verizon halting rollout. 5G is up and running in Europe, but operates at a frequency that doesn't pose a risk to aviation craft.

Unfortunately, AT&T didn't think that far in advance.

Note that some aircraft are already cleared. A big problem seems to be with the Boeing 777 and 747-8.

This is an FAA problem, not an FCC problem.

OK, enough of this BS. Here is what is really going on.

Basically, the FAA was supposed to test this spectrum before it was sold against all their certified avaition devices before the spectrum was sold. The FAA tested NOTHING. Then the carriers gave billions of $ to the FCC in the spectrum auctions.

So the FCC is fat, d-mb and happy, as they put billions into the federal coffers so they could keep paying all the federal pensions.

The FAA LIED saying they tested the equipment, but they did not. Then the "press" gets hold of this or it was leaked and so the press created a panic as they like to create panic. The airlines reacted to the chaos as they needed to do something or be complicit.

So blame your greedy federal bureaucrats for NOT doing their job, covering up the fact they did not do their job, and will get pay raises, pension increases and more budget for not doing their job.

This is just another cluster F*CK by your wonderful Federal Goobernment.

Understand the spectrum positioning of each carrier. TMO is in the cat bird seat thanks to RLS failed TMO acquisition. Part of the penalty was cash (which well fell short) so we gave them spectrum. This spectrum was a solid mid-band and they are kicking VZW & AT&T bu-t with it. T was asleep at the CBRS auction. All eggs in one basket with the 29B CBAND purchase+ additional 4B to clean it. What is not talked about or shared with many folks is the lack of AT&T infrastructure in place. Next townhall with leadership, one should ask how the HUB build out is going (needed for CBAND to work). Deer in the headlight looks for sure. Again, Mobility waiting on wireline.

T-mobile has 5G at airports with no problem. ATT bought the wrong spectrum for its 5G.

The problem only seems to be here in the US. Some are saying that the big carriers need to upgrade their avionics and they had plenty of time to do it.

Since you can't figure this out yourself imbecile, At&t and Verizon will be laying off lots more people since they can't offer 5G on their last chance worthless C- band spectrum. T-Mobile isn't impacted by this and they will eat At&t and Verizon's lunch over this. That is why this relates to layoffs. And Europe's airports don't have this issue.

I was wondering why 5G hasn't been an issue in the EU & SK but suddenly is here. Thanks, AT&T!

AT&T paid a fortune for this spectrum. OOPS! All sales final. Looks like this investment is going to work out as well as Randall and Stankey's other expenditures.
