Will the FCC Relax the Ban on Mobile Phone Usage During Flights?

The FCC is finally considering lifting the ban on cell phone usage during flight, after 22 years in place. As it translates to more profit for them, the Telecommunications Industry Association is a huge proponent of the plan. “Modern technologies can deliver mobile services in the air safely and reliably, and the time is right to review our outdated and restrictive rules. I look forward to working closely with my colleagues, the FAA and the airline industry on this review of new mobile opportunities for consumers,” states the FCC Chairman.

The increase in usage, as a result, will bring about continued reliance upon infrastructure to support the traffic, which means more cell towers, if the change is approved. The surge in cell towers has become a norm in today’s society and is a sign of the times, as well as an indicator of the growing need for more cell towers so that the population can stay connected and “plugged in”, now even at 36,000 feet!cell-phone-tower[1]
