We all know that LS2 is fighting a desparete and last chance uphill battle, but the logic of some of the points in this article make sense, and possibly shows some bias on the FCC's part and the involvement of the GPS industry. What to you people think? Will LS2 get a second shot? or is this the death throes of a dying company?

I think LS2's cries are justified, but are probably falling on deaf ears.

On a side note... Given the trouble that LS2 has had if this spectrum goes back up for sale who would buy it? Is there anything other than GPS that it could be used for?

No, I think that any conspiracy theories are unfounded. GPS manufacturers have nothing to gain nor lose if LightSquared truly can ameliorate the ATC interference issues. But this is a legitimate and serious technical problem. And if LightSquared cannot prevent interference beyond a shadow of a doubt, then LightSquared has no choice but to abide by the original regulations of its L band satellite spectrum.

The FCC has allowed the public to voice their opinions on the matter; if you would like, please voice your opinion in support of LS. The FCC is asking for public opinions.

    • you'll need to flash the Sprint firmware. 
    • There are really two providers in Canada: ROGERS and TELUS/Bell. TELUS and Bell operate the same network. 
    • How is Canada's three wireless companies working out...
    • No. You are not based in reality if you think the wireless market is going to stagnate if Sprint and T-Mobile merge. 5g is coming and will be pushed by everyone in the market place.    The question is weather you want it to follow the same pattern LTE did or not. Would you like the big two to deploy a really solid 5g network and the other two to deploy an uneven networks or 3 solid th networks?    You anti-merger people dont understand the role capital intensive industries play in shaping such markets.  If a market is capital intensive it is more efficient with fewer players. Imgaine if the market still looked like it did in 2003, we would have plenty of players and regional plans with not even 3g deployed.   Sprint has 30 billion. They are able to increase CAPEX this year because they don't have much maturing this year.  This is not the case the next two years which means they are likely to starve their network again over that time. Mean while the big two aren't going to stand still. Sprint isn't growing top line income fast enough to make themselves viable on their own.      
    • This merger would stagnate the wireless market it would stink almost immediately.  You are pro-merger but already wondering if they would have capital to build and expand the network.  Sprint now has positive revenue to increase CAPEX for additional B41, MIMO, and 5G why hault the improvements that Sprint has been making?   You guys screaming pro merger really need to sit back and really think, are you willing to see less competition and increasing wireless bills?  Not to mention that unlimited will be a thing of the past, after all it was Sprint and T-Mobile that made the big two offer unlimited.  If this merger goes through I don't want to hear complaining I am taking names...
