My understanding is it's simply for the voice component in some rural markets. Satellite integration was required as part of conditions attached to the spectrum Lightsquared is using, though they recently got some FCC leniency on those requirements I'm still reading through...

they don't have to totally use the sat for Internet. They can easily create a LTE network for that just as Clear does using a home base modem.

that can be done by using LTE @home stations/modems like Clear. They could also route Voice over LTE/IP and be done with it. the voice on sat could be a back-up especially otherwise there will be a noticeable delay in just using a dish for voice.
