Yup, you heard that right. LightSquared took to the stage this wendsay during the Open Mobile Summit to outline their goals going forward as a national provider of 4G LTE service.
“We want to be the dumbest wireless broadband pipe. No intelligence in our network. None. Zero.” said LightSquared CEO Sanjiv Ahuja in his keynote address.
Effectively Lightsquared is distancing themselves from every player in the mobile industry that tries to monetize their income by charging you ridiculous prices for exactly the same thing. Instead they seek to become a utility company that provides unrestricted data via LTE.
Now of course there is a possibility this claim is done to garner more popular support for them in their never ending debacle with claims of GPS interference. But any cell phone enthusiast can’t disagree that if this come to be, it will be like a dream come true.
What do you think?
