LightSquared might take legal action over GPS

Stephen Lawson | Oct. 4, 2011
LightSquared may take legal action if it is denied permission to build its planned LTE network because of concerns over interference between that network and GPS, an executive said Monday.

The carrier's tougher language may be intended to get GPS backers to the bargaining table. In a statement last weekend, LightSquared claimed it had committed nearly $160 million to solving the interference problem and called on the industry to recall and fix receivers at its own cost. Last month, LightSquared had said it wasn't planning to help fund retrofits for precision GPS devices except those owned by the government. That position was probably intended as its opening gambit in a possible negotiation with the industry, Mechanick said.
