Globalstar Comments On FCC Waiver For LightSquared's Use Of MSS Spectrum For Terrestrial Broadband

COVINGTON, La., Jan. 31, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globalstar, Inc. (Nasdaq:GSAT), a leading provider of mobile satellite voice and data services to businesses, government, and individuals today announced the Company's response to the recent U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decision to grant LightSquared Subsidiary LLC (LightSquared), a conditional waiver of the Integrated Service Rule.

L. Barbee Ponder, General Counsel and VP of Regulatory Affairs, Globalstar, Inc. stated, "With this order LightSquared has been granted the authority to provide terrestrial only wireless broadband services using mobile satellite spectrum. This relaxation of the gating criteria for LightSquared is necessitated by the explosive growth of spectrum-hungry mobile broadband devices. We look forward to the FCC extending similar flexibility to other mobile satellite services providers including Globalstar.   

"We are also pleased with the FCC's continued recognition that the L-band portion of the mobile satellite spectrum is suitable for delivering mobile broadband to consumers and helping meet the Commission's significant spectrum objectives outlined in the National Broadband Plan."
