Yet Another Taxpayer Shaft
Again LightSquared is looking for a way to circumvent the whole spectrum auction process and convert their almost worthless spectrum in valuable terrestrial spectrum. Maybe they should consider bidding on the 700MHz D-Block.
I am not against a competitive LTE provider but from the get go the whole LightSquared business model has been about converting low-cost/no-cost satellite spectrum into valuable terrestrial spectrum. Failing that they now want to be handed terrestrial spectrum for free. IMHO, they can bid on it just like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile did. Cough up a few bucks and do it right.
I support the right to keep and arm bears.
