Politically-connected LightSquared Pushes Wireless Internet Plan despite
GPS Interference Concerns
http://www.thecuttingedgenews.com/in...?article=52446

"When the Federal Communications Commission granted LightSquared Inc.
expedited approval to launch a new wireless Internet service, some
powerful voices in Washington expressed alarm, including the Pentagon
and one-third of the U.S. Senate.

"LightSquared’s bold $14 billion plan, its detractors said, could
cripple Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) systems and threaten aviation
safety, disrupt military and rescue operations, and interfere with
high-tech farming equipment and the everyday navigation devices used by
millions".
