LightSquared Spars with U.S. Gov't Over New GPS Testing

In a leaked document of the latest round of testing of the proposed LightSquared 4G LTE service, the government concluded LightSquared signals are disruptive to 75% of the GPS devices used in the testing. The full report will be presented to the Commerce Department on December 14th.

"LightSquared signals caused harmful interference to majority of GPS receivers tested," reads the draft. "No additional testing is required to confirm harmful interference exists."
