The FCC is seeking comment on LightSquared's latest proposal to salvage its MSS L-band spectrum holdings and deploy an LTE network. By Phil Goldstein
In a public notice, the FCC said petitions to deny LightSquared’s proposal to share spectrum that is currently set aside for weather balloons used by the federal government, are due December 17. This is just the latest step in a long-running saga that has left LightSquared in bankruptcy protection fighting for its survival.
Earlier this fall LightSquared filed a new spectrum proposal that, if approved, would let it combine the 5MHz it uses for satellite service with frequencies currently used by National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration weather balloons. The company would share the NOAA spectrum rather than gain exclusive rights to it.
