Sanjiv Ahuja says LightSquared will continue its legal fight for the right to wholesale spectrum to carriers and Sandy Motley of Alcatel-Lucent discusses migration to LTE for smaller carriers
A wireless partnership that could have competed with the US's largest carriers like AT&T (NYSE:T) and Verizon (NYSE:VZ) has ended. The Wall Street Journal reports Sprint (NYSE:S) will end its 15-year contract with LightSquared and return $65 million in prepayments to the company. The move comes after the Federal Communications Commission said earlier this year that LightSquared would not be able to operate its proposed nationwide fourth-generation network. The wireless start-up's plan would have used satellite wireless airwaves through 40000 cell towers covering 260 million Americans. LightSquared hoped to sell its service wholesale to carriers seeking extra capacity. Last month, the FCC said it wouldn't allow LightSquared to operate its network because of concerns it would interfere with Global Positioning Systems signals. Because of the termination of Sprint's deal, LightSquared will have to find more funding if it ever gets approval for their planned network.

How do you throw away $4 billion? Buy spectrum you can't use. That seems to be what Lightsquared did, once the FCC revoked a license that would have let the company build a new nationwide wireless broadband network.
Don't you ever tell the truth Senator? The FCC provided every piece of information that you are entitled to, to the public when it posted every document required to the Internet on its FCC.gov website according to Freedom of Information Act rules. Your statement that they refused to turn over any documents is clearly untrue. Contrary to what you say, the interference issue is not settled. To save a few dollars, inferior and shoddy receiving devices were designed and used by your corporate financier Deere and Company causing interference to themselves by listening outside of their designated band. It's like you insisting that WHO radio go off the air because when you dig out your cat's whisker crystal set radio - popular when Thomas Edison was a boy - to listen to WMT; you also pick up WHO at the same time - because the cat's whisker doesn't have proper selectivity. It can't tune in one station and reject the other station because of its cheap, simplistic design. Chuck, your crystal set's shortcomings should not dictate aa dumbed-down version of technological innovation today. American prosperity goes hand-in-hand with our technological innovation. I don't think you are fooling anybody Senator. We know why you're spreading this misinformation. It's been written in countless articles. You should take particular care not to get involved with the latest lawsuit because you use the power of the Senate of the United States to try to pick and choose which innovative idea, and ...
During his weekly video address, Senator Chuck Grassley explains why the Federal Communications Commission should provide documents about its preliminary approval of the LightSquared broadband project now that the agency has withdrawn its approval. Senator Grassley has been seeking full disclosure for nearly a year, arguing that the public's business ought to be public. He said he is seeking accountability for the way the FCC administers valuable spectrum space.

Transcript by www.newsy.com BY BREANA JONES ANCHOR CHRISTINA HARTMAN AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and... LightSquared? LightSquared had hopes to be the next major wireless broadband network in the US, but the Federal Communications Commission said no. Bloomberg explains why. "The Federal Agencies coming out and saying that the Lightsquared network interferes with GPS devices and can't be fixed and because of that the government is revoking its initial approval of the network." The FCC isn't just worried about your Garmin not getting you to grandma's house. The interference with GPS will affect US military and aviation systems that rely on the same airwaves. Leaders in the industry say the risk is just too great. "Operating on that upper 10 megahurtz of frequency, closest to GPS, all of the testing that's been done so far, all of the analysis shows that would be catastrophic. You would have wide spread outages of GPS." (Video Source CSPAN) You may be thinking... why don't all these systems have their own frequencies? CNN explains it's a bit more complicated than that. "...the GPS companies have been jumping the fence for years, picking up signals transmitted through their neighbors' property. It had gone unnoticed, since LightSquared and its predecessors hadn't been using the spectrum until recently... Even though the interference issues aren't LightSquared's fault, the FCC said its hands are tied." A VP for LightSquared blasted the GPS companies— accusing them of using lobbying ...
