LightSquared may file lawsuit against GPS industry and FCC

LawsuitI don't know about you, but I always like a good bit of drama. And the LightSquared saga is turning out to be just the drama I've been looking for.

The latest news is that LightSquared, which was originally supposed to help Sprint build out its new 4G LTE network, is now hiring lawyers to study whether or not it might be wise to file a lawsuit against the FCC and the GPS industry. As you know, both have been doing everything in their power to stop the proposed network buildout due to possible interference with GPS satellites.

Of course, a lawsuit would be a long shot. More likely would be an attempt to swap spectrum for other frequencies that have been assigned to the US Department of Defense. In any case, it will definitely be interesting to see how this all plays out – and luckily, Sprint seems to be doing just fine without LightSquared.
