LightSquared Being Investigated by Oversight Commitee

This isn't good news for LightSquared (the satellite based LTE/4G Network that is being deployed).  First they have problems with interfering with GPS signals (because the frequency they use is very close to GPS signal and it causes GPS to stop working.  The military probably doesn't like this.  Now, LightSquared is being investigated for giving donations to the White House in return for getting approval to build out their 4G Network.

With the recent collapse of Solyndra which costs taxpayers 500 million, we are sure that LightSquared will be looked at very closely.
