LightSquared, a new, coast-to-coast LTE wireless broadband operation, announced plans to use a LTE/satellite hybrid to cover 92 percent of the United States population with 4G by 2015. LightSquared's network will be a pure-play wholesale platform, meaning it will be available to ISPs, cable operators and just about anyone else, according to Ars Technica.


LightSquared plans to begin providing service in the second half of 2011in Baltimore, Denver, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Nokia Siemens won an eight-year $7 million contract to build, maintain and operate the LTE network, according to TeleGeography.
