AT&T and Verizon propose 5G limits to break aviation safety deadlock

AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. have said they will limit some of their fifth-generation wireless services for six months while federal regulators examine the effect of signals on aircraft sensors, an effort to defuse a conflict that rocked both industries.

Mobile operators detailed the proposed limits on Wednesday in a letter to the Federal Communications Commission. The companies have said they will reduce signal strength levels from cell towers nationwide and impose stricter power caps near airports and helipads, according to a copy reviewed by the Wall Street Journal.
