A federal advisory board submitted a report to the Federal Communications Commission earlier this week detailing how LightSquared's proposed broadband network in the L-Band spectrum not only hinders GPS services on or near the ground, but significantly impacts GPS services reaching into space. The board says that a solution to solve the problem exists, but it is impractical and would take 10 to 15 years to fully implement. The advisory board contends that LightSquared's network is so disruptive, that the FCC should reverse its decision to allow LightSquared to build the network at all. This is only the latest in a series of reports that show how LightSquared's network interferes with GPS services. LightSquared maintains that the problems can be resolved, though it asked the FCC for a two week extension for filing its own reports.
