LightSquared, FCC face criticism from Republican lawmakers
from The Washington Post
The Federal Communications Commission's initial approval of a troubled satellite venture came under fresh criticism as a key Republican lawmaker questioned whether the agency's actions could lead to billions of dollars in costs for taxpayers. LightSquared is trying to build a cellphone network out of satellites, but the technology interferes with Global Positioning System technology used by pilots, consumers and meteorologists. LightSquared wants the military and other federal agencies to refit its equipment with filters.
