FCC demands further testing of LightSquared LTE network to prevent GPS interference

Look on the bright side Lightsquared: You only have to get it right once, and they are off your back. It seems that getting it right once is a problem, though.

I think Lightsquared will get it right, they need to step up with a solution already so the LTE can finally be up & going!

Unless and until Lightsquared can conclusively show no interference with existing GPS systems, they will not get an FCC approval. FCC is not about to give Lightsquared (or any other vendor for that matter) approval to mess with existing GPS devices. The U.S. DOD is the big elephant in the room on this issue - think of how many GPS devices they have at risk....

I really feel sorry for these guys! If they're sticking to their end of the spectrum they should either sue the gps manufacturers that are interfering or sue the government for selling them a useless piece of the wireless spectrum!

Oh look, the sh*tty government suing because of their own crappy equipment. And this is why technology is so far behind because of bs like this.
