U.S. House technology panel heads seeks delay in 5G spectrum auction

WASHINGTON, March 13 (Reuters) - Leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Science, Space and Technology Committee on Wednesday asked the Federal Communications Commission to delay a planned radio frequency spectrum auction for 5G wireless communications.

The panel’s Democratic chairwoman, Eddie Bernice Johnson, and its top Republican, Frank Lucas, cited concerns that the spectrum under consideration could interfere with signals for sensors related to weather and climate forecasting and said such interference could impact public safety.
