LightSquared to Use Alternate Airwaves as GPS Jamming Fix

Billionaire Philip Falcone’s LightSquared Inc. wireless venture said it will use a different set of airwaves for its service than originally planned to help prevent interference with U.S. global positioning-systems.

LightSquared will offer its service on a block of airwaves, known as spectrum, that is controlled by satellite company Inmarsat Plc when it introduces service early next year, Chief Executive Officer Sanjiv Ahuja said in an interview.
