If you live in a more rural area where there is little broadband access to be had one of the best hopes to get you connected was LightSquared. This was a wireless broadband technology that offered LTE speeds and used wireless spectrum that had previously be used by satellites alone. The satellite firms using that spectrum had complained that the use of the spectrum would interfere with GPS navigation services.

In government testing the LightSquared technology was found to significantly interfere with GPS navigation devices. According to the report issued on the testing 75% of those devices tested were significantly interfered with by LightSquared.

LightSquared isn't going up yet though. The company says that it has a low power mode that would likely only interfere with 10% of the devices out there. It's not clear how many devices were used in testing but the nav devices that were used were for vehicle and boat navigation.
