While AT&T and Verizon have agreed to delay #5G #deployment at major airports, the solution is only temporary. The conundrum will continue as technology innovations evolve, and many different bands are being shifted to 5G operations. The question remains – what will happen to incumbents operating in those bands and what effect will there be on adjacent operations?

The demand for frequencies is higher than ever, and being too late to the game can put major delays in your exploration project. Let us know how we can help.
