Globalstar jumps on FCC notice of proposed rulemaking

  • Shares of Globalstar (GSAT.OB +23.3%) jump after the FCC places the company's proposal to allow it to use its MSS spectrum for mobile broadband on the commission's list of pending items.
  • The satellite company aims to partner with carriers to launch LTE service on its spectrum.
  • Globalstar is attempting to avoid the pitfalls of a similar, failed proposal by LightSquared due to the FCC's concerns that its proposed network would interfere with GPS services.
  • The much larger Dish Network (DISH) has satellite-based LTE plans of its own. It recently launched a test program in rural Virginia.

    Mark, your the man in my book. Thanks for the great picks. Im hand over fisting it with HIMX. I played PXLW wrong and got out too soon, but still took home some profit. Then I bought into GSAT just on the simple fact that your other picks have done well for me, and THEN I did my DD lol. Your articles here or on SA are always well written and cover all the facts, rumors, and speculation. My hat is off to you good sir.
