LightSquared makes multi-year deal with AirTouch

Wholesale 4G network carrier LightSquared this week said it was giving access to its network to AirTouch Communications. The multi-year deal will allow AirTouch to sell voice, data, video and even traditional landline services, letting it behave like a full MVNO (mobile virtual network operator). AirTouch will offer its existing devices through LightSquared's other existing partners.

AirTouch makes cellphone technology and wireless signal amplification products both for the industry and for real end users, such as cell@home, HomeConnex, UFO, and FocalPoint.

With this latest deal, LightSquared now has 15 partner agreements for use of its open network. AirTouch is the first device maker that will sell wireless voice and data service over LightSquared's network, however.
