The Federal Communications Commission has granted Lightsquared a waiver to allow it to circumvent a law. The Ancillary Terrestrial Component (ATC) requires mobile phones that use satellite airwaves to actually communicate with the satellite. By allowing Lightsquared to ignore this rule, it will be able to move forward with its business plan.

The FCC has made this decision despite concerns raised by network operators and operators of global positioning systems. Lightsquared wants to create a national wireless broadband network using Long Term Evolution.
