LightSquared Forms Rural Initiative

LightSquared has formed "Empower Rural America Initiative" to lead its campaign for regulatory approval of its LTE+satellite broadband network. The initiative is led by an advisory board that includes former Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota and former Representatives George Nethercutt of Washington and Charlie Stenholm of Texas.

"There is an overwhelming need for reliable wireless broadband for public safety, education, healthcare and economic development in rural America. We can have a robust, accurate GPS network and also create a substantial new resource for rural America in the form of a wireless network that reaches areas that still don't have broadband access," said former Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota.
