LightSquared has proposed a comprehensive solution to prevent interference of GPS with different frequencies.
Based on early tests, LightSquared confirmed that one of the company's 10MHz block spectrum interfered with GPS receivers.
Instead LightSquared said it decided to work with satellite company Inmarsat, to rollout it's LTE network with another 10MHz spectrum that would cut half of its power network to reduce interference further.
This is a solution which ensures that tens of millions of GPS users won't be affected by LightSquared's launch, said Sanjiv Ahuja, LightSquare's chairman and chief executive, in a statement.
At the same time, this plan offers a clear path for LightSquared to move forward with the launch of a nationwide wireless network that will introduce world class broadband service to rural and underserved areas which still find themselves on the wrong side of the digital divide.
This new plan will allow LightSquared enough spectrum to server its customers for the next several years to launch its services on schedule. The commercial service would launch later this year.
