LightSquared today successfully launched its first satellite to use with its planned satellite / terrestrial hybrid Long Term Evolution mobile broadband network. The Sky Terra 1 was hurled skyward by International Launch Services from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur Cosmodrome. The satellite is a Boeing 702HP and features a 22-meter L-band reflector antenna. The Sky Terra 1 will help LightSquared provide wholesale mobile broadband access nationwide. LightSquared is combining its planned satellite services with ground-based LTE network coverage, which has yet to launch.

This is freaking cool!

I hope it means the start of an incredibly powerful nationwide service area with zero dropped calls both data and voice!

Maybe I'm just dreaming but I'm definitely crossing my fingers!
