FCC Wants Public Opinion on LightSquared's GPS Claims

Article Comments  18

The Federal Communications Commission is seeking public comments on a recent request made by LightSquared. LightSquared wants the FCC to agree that the GPS industry does not deserve to be protected from interference that may be caused by LightSquared's planned Long Term Evolution 4G network. LightSquared maintains that GPS equipment and services have been shoddily engineered and encroach on LightSquared's spectrum (not the other way around). The FCC is taking comments on the matter until February 27.

What does public opinion have to do with the FCC doing their job?
The governement is the voice of the people. Apparently they don't have enough voice. They want to get the opinion of the public to weigh on whether or not Lightsquared can get it's 4G through. This again is a public based decision.

I vote yes....
Public opinion is open filing for all opinions, standard with any public filing. There have been many filed - see foia
