LightSquared and Cellular South Sign LTE Roaming Pact

LightSquared announced an LTE roaming agreement with Cellular South, a privately owned wireless communications provider headquartered in Ridgeland, Mississipp. The deal will provide subscribers of Cellular South with a nationwide 4G-LTE footprint as well as satellite coverage in rural areas where there is no terrestrial network. It will also expand LightSquared's 4G data coverage to additional rural communities.

"LightSquared's wholesale-only, integrated 4G-LTE wireless broadband and satellite network, makes them a valuable partner because it enables us to provide our customers, including those in rural locations, with nationwide access to the most advanced technology and reliable coverage available," said Hu Meena, president and CEO of Cellular South.
