Now that the government has decided against allowing LightSquared to use its L-Band spectrum to operate an LTE 4G network, the company is scrambling to come up with alternatives.

Citing a source familiar with LightSquared's plans, the Journal notes that this alternative plan may not come to pass.

LightSquared has already invested more than $4 billion to make its network a reality.
