GPS company, airlines concerned about the effects of LightSquare's aggressive wireless broadband
Will wireless services start to threaten to disrupt other uses, or vice versa? Alan Levin has a story in USA Today, March 10, “High Speed Wireless vs. GPS; new network could disrupt car, jet navigation, trade groups say”, link here.
The high speed service would come from LightSquared, here The name of the company corresponds to Einstein’s formula for energy.
GPS companies like Gamin have said that the FCC has moved too fast.
But I can remember that back in the 1960s, people in some cities (as around Pittbsurgh) complained that signals from military bases interfered with home electronics.
