The Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) has urged the FCC to open a public proceeding on Ligado Networks, formerly known as New LightSquared, regarding its licence modifications and spectrum reallocation request. The CCA encouraged the FCC to grant the request to more deeply encourage the FCC and industry stakeholders through the notice-and-comment process. It recommends that the regulator "unleash 40 MHz of undeveloped spectrum."
