According to anonymous sources cited by Bloomberg, LightSquared is looking to buy Long Term Evolution network access from AT&T. Though the deal has not been finalized, LightSquared would use AT&T's forthcoming LTE network in areas where it doesn't have the coverage or capacity to provide its own services. LightSquared is building a nationwide LTE network using L-band spectrum that it plans to launch later this year. It has inked roaming deals with smaller operators, including Cellular South, Cricket Wireless and Open Range. AT&T plans to launch LTE in five markets this summer. Neither LightSquared nor AT&T would comment on the Bloomberg report.

Excuse me?

I thought at&t didn't have enough spectrum to offer LTE? Isn't that why they NEED T-Mobile? Sounds like someone at at&t is talking out of both sides of their mouth. Or maybe out of both their mouth and a__.
they have enough spectrum to launch some LTE, but not the aggressive rollout and EXPANDED coverage they would like to offer to customers nationwide. that is the difference.

A match made in heaven

Linksquared interferes with GPS, and AT&T interferes with productivity.
