The CEOs of several major airlines recently sent a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC), warning that 5G could cause interference with systems on airplanes. The letter came as AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) were set to launch 5G C-band service around the country. In this video clip from "Editorial" on Motley Fool Live, recorded on Jan. 18, Fool.com contributor John Bromels explains the details of the letter and what it could mean for the future of 5G.
