04/20, 2:20pm

LightSquared reworks contract with Inmarsat

LightSquared on Friday changed its agreement with Inmarsat, with the latter effectively extending the deadline for the payments LightSquared is responsible for. The company has already missed its $56.25 million Phase 1 payment, with Phase 2 due on April 1, 2014. The extension will give LightSquared time to try and resolve regulatory issues that are keeping it from launching its 4G LTE network.

It would potentially be faster than the land service at as much as 50Mbps; the EVDO link in the US stops at 3.1Mbps.
