LightSquared Will Take Legal Action if System Denied

Earlier this year LightSquared faced a Congressional hearing in regards to their system interfering with government GPS systems. They indicated that " only 500,000 to 750,000 high-end GPS services would be affected", which is higher than the FCC would like to say. Yesterday LightSquared indicated they'd take legal action if the FCC rejects their plan to build out a national wireless broadband system. LightSquared wrote a recent letter to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, which indicates the problems relate to faulty design and performance of GPS receivers. The main problem is the GPS receivers are falling within the spectrum that LightSquared owns and they don't feel it's fair they should be responsible for devices going outside the spectrum GPS systems were designed to use. Jeff Carlisle LightSquared VP of Government and Regulatory Affairs indicates "If it is impossible to get a decision on this that allows us to go forward, I think our way forward is pretty clear, that we then have to insist on our legal rights", and "If you have to be the bad guy, and go out and start … insisting on your property line, well, then that's what we'll do." The FCC is set to conduct more testing and the results are due on Nov. 30.
