LightSquared to FCC: it's our spectrum, interference is GPS industry's problem [telecom]

by Matthew Lasar (Ars Technica)

Embattled wholesale satellite broadband contender LightSquared has taken off the gloves. The company has asked the Federal Communications Commission for a "declaratory ruling" confirming its right to use spectrum licensed to the company by the FCC. Not only that, but LightSquared wants the Commission to confirm that GPS makers - who have been complaining of interference risks for months - lack any legal basis to ask for interference protections.

Just wondering --

If Lightsquared should, by some idiocy, receive permission to continue their folly, would not the very 4G LTE phones they purport to serve have their own GPS receivers perturbed by Lightsquared's interfering signals? :-)
