Restoration of 5G services near airports expected soon
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has held a meeting with DoT, telcos and airline operators in an effort to restart 5G services in and around airports. Stakeholders submitted their reports before the regulators.
Background. Last year the Department of Telecommunications sent a letter to not set up C-band 5G base stations within the 2.1 km range of Indian airports with immediate effect, as C Band 5G can cause problems with the aircraft’s radio (radar) altimeter. 5G service at the airport has been barred since November 2022.
