Re: dont cry for lightsquared
said by sparc:The government gave the company they bought the spectrum for free, but only for ground to satellite communications. said by elefante72:
Now dont cry for lightsquared, they got this for "free" in an acquisition, so it's not like they are out dollars, and also they havent actually produced any handsets (which would clearly show the problem).
if they paid for the company they acquired, then they paid for the spectrum. Unless you're saying the government gave lightsquared the spectrum entirely for free.....
