Lightsquared today, speaking at the CTIA Wireless event, announced that Best Buy will resell Lightsquared's LTE services under the Best Buy Connect brand, the big box retailer's MVNO. Lightsquared is using satellite spectrum and other spectrum to build out a nationwide Long Term Evolution mobile broadband network.
