FCC Implies that GPS Receiver Performance Needs Fixing
‹ Back to message list
There was simply no way the changes required could/would be implemented in a time frame that would have allowed Lightsquared to operate. On one level, they were screwed because the whole fiasco should never have been allowed to get this far. Being "technically" right in no way eliminates the realities of the situation. The GPS devices were there first and are of critical importance. Changing them to not bleed over would take time and cost a lot of money.
The more logical solution would be tighter rules on how they use spectrum going forward and allow attrition and software patches to take care of the issue. Given time, that will then make the adjoining spectrum usable.
