LightSquared today asked the Federal Communications Commission for a two-week extension before it has to submit its report concerning interference with GPS systems. The report was due today, and LightSquared asked for permission to submit the report on July 1, instead. In a letter to the FCC, Lightsquared's executive vice president of regulatory affairs and public policy, Jeffrey Carlisle, said, "Based on preliminary test results, LightSquared determined that additional testing, beyond what had been planned initially, including alternative frequency plans to support its network roll-out, was necessary to permit a proper evaluation. That testing has been performed, and it has set back the timetable, particularly in some sub-teams in which data is still being processed and analyzed." The FCC gave Lightsquared permission to use its L-Band spectrum for a planned terrestrial Long Term Evolution network, but only if it can operate without interfering with the nearby GPS services.
