LightSquared Stops Short of Calling FCC Action Illegal
LightSquared today said the Federal Communications Commission's decision to revoke its license is "entirely unsupported by the law, science, and FCC policy and precedent." After extensive review, the FCC last month decided that LightSquared can't run its planned LTE 4G broadband network due to concerns over interference with GPS systems. LightSquared's Public Notice filing said the FCC "need not and should not embrace the false choice presented by the GPS industry between preserving LightSquared's ancillary terrestrial component (ATC) authority to deploy a wireless broadband network and maintaining GPS service. The FCC's response in this matter is wholly incongruous and disproportionate." LightSquared once again asserted its position that the FCC needs to device a way to allow LightSquared to move forward with its broadband network plans. LightSquared also blasted the FCC for blocking its proposals while allowing proposals made by Dish Network to move forward.

This is just plain old BS
They need to replace every device out there that could potentially cause issues and stay within their designated spectrum band and not bleed over.
LS tried to use spectrum that was designated for Extraterrestrial use from terresterial based transmitters.
They could not control the bleed over.
They tried, it didn't work.
The FCC did not f...
