Based on the results of numerous tests, Long Term Evolution broadband provider Lightsquared will have to tell the Federal Communications Commission in a report that its network interferes with GPS systems. The FCC gave permission to Lightsquared to use its L-Band spectrum for terrestrial network purposes, depending on the outcome of interference tests with nearby GPS services. Tests conducted in recent weeks show that Lightsquared's planned LTE network consistently interferes with GPS. Lightsquared maintains that it can adjust its network so that it won't interfere with GPS systems, but it has yet to do that. It has to turn in a report to the FCC tomorrow of the initial test results. The test results put Lightsquared's business in jeopardy, as it has signed a number of network agreements with other network providers.
