Nationwide LTE Broadband Network

LightSquared will offer reliable and comprehensive nationwide 4G-LTE wireless broadband coverage. Currently networks in the U.S. are struggling with a lack of capacity and the ability to quickly and reliably supply voice and data services to their customers. LightSquared is addressing this problem by building a best-in-class network with ubiquitous satellite coverage.

Preferred LTE Technology

LightSquared is building a 4G-LTE open wireless broadband network that will enable a true broadband experience. LTE, a 3GPP technology standard, is the basis of the 4G network deployments of nearly every major carrier globally.

The LTE standard provides an ecosystem advantage and a superior user experience. From a technology perspective, LTE has a maximum data rate—over 100 MB/second—which enables LightSquared to offer more immediate communication with minimal delay and faster upload and download speeds.

Terrestrial + Satellite = Constant Connectivity

LightSquared is using terrestrial and satellite technology to ensure constant connectivity, regardless of location. LightSquared’s next-generation satellite, built by Boeing, was launched into geostationary orbit over North America in November 2010. Among the largest and most powerful commercial satellites ever launched, this space-based network will provide ubiquitous coverage to users when they are out of cellular range.
