Influencer is just another term for narcissist. With the rampant growth of social media, these self-absorbed types have come out of the woodwork in droves.

People desperate for their 5 minutes of fame before they sink back into triviality.

Verizon, AT&T Delay 5G Rollout Near Airports After Warning Of ‘Catastrophic Disruption’

Major telecommunications companies Verizon and AT&T delayed the rollout of their 5G technology near certain airports after a letter from the heads of major U.S. airlines warned of “catastrophic disruption” to travel.

Verizon said in a statement Tuesday that it would go forward with its planned Wednesday launch of the 5G Ultra Wideband network, but “voluntarily decided to limit” its implementation around airports.

AT&T similarly said it would “temporarily defer turning on a limited number of towers around certain airport runways.” The company took aim at the Federal Aviation Administration, saying it was “frustrated by the FAA’s inability … to safely deploy 5G technology without disrupting aviation services.”

In a letter to the FAA and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Monday, the CEOs of major U.S. airlines — including American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airways and United Airlines — called for “immediate action to address 5G interference with [the] national aviation system.”

Airline heads warned of potential “catastrophic disruption” to air travel and shipping if 5G were to be deployed around airports, asking that the technology not be implemented within 2 miles of airport runways.

“Unless our major hubs are cleared to fly, the vast majority of the traveling and shipping public will essentially be grounded,” the airlines warned.

Articles and complaints about stuff like this drive me crazy.  5G wouldn't be the issue, the frequencies that they may be using to deploy parts of the 5G networks could be, but the technology itself isn't the problem.
