The Federal Communications Commission today issued a statement concerning the recent report from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration regarding LightSquared. The FCC said the International Bureau of the Commission is proposing to vacate LightSquared's Conditional Waiver Order, and suspend indefinitely LightSquared's Ancillary Terrestrial Component authority to operate its planned LTE network. The FCC said it will issue a Public Notice on February 16 seeking comments on the proposal. Despite the NTIA's findings, the FCC doesn't let the GPS industry off the hook for the end result. "This proceeding has revealed challenges to removing regulatory barriers on spectrum that restrict use of that spectrum for mobile broadband. This includes receivers that pick up signals from spectrum uses in neighboring bands. Congress, the FCC, other federal agencies, and private sector stakeholders must work together in a concerted effort to reduce regulatory barriers and free up spectrum for mobile broadband. Part of this effort should address receiver performance to help ensure the most efficient use of all spectrum to drive our economy and best serve American consumers." LightSquared, which is funded by Philip Falcone's Harbinger Group, disputes the NTIA's findings.
