----" Sprint has given LightSquared until the end of January to score FCC approval before it backs out of the network-leasing deal the companies struck in 2011."----

This essentially is an eviction notice by Sprint. Sprint knows that there is no way LightSquared will get approval from the FCC. Sprint's focus will be better used on Clearwire. Sprint's 5Mhz x 5Mhz will be completely "under-nourished" within a quick time span compared to AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless by the end of this year. Clearwire's 2.5Ghz spectrum holdings will become Sprint's greatest asset in adding a substantial amount of capacity to their network. This will catapult Sprint to a very potent network position.
