Re: Lightsquared says you should pay for your GPS

Here is a snippet from a Lightsquared news release from their home site.

 

"LightSquared’s mission is to revolutionize the U.S. wireless industry. With the creation of the first-ever, wholesale-only nationwide 4G-LTE network integrated with satellite coverage, LightSquared offers people the speed, value and reliability of universal broadband connectivity, wherever they are in the United States. As a wholesale-only operator, LightSquared will deploy an open 4G network to be used by existing and new service providers to sell their own devices, applications and services – at a competitive cost and without retail competition from LightSquared. The deployment and operation of LightSquared’s network represent more than $14 billion of private investment over the next eight years." 

 

They have signed with a retailer.  It is obvious they want to get some traction and overcome the increasing opposition to their frequency conflict with GPS, including ag GPS uses.
