There has been a lot of controversy lately over another broadband provider (LightSquared) and it’s attempt to use a different slice of spectrum, however it appears this spectrum cannot be used for broadband wireless as it is too close to frequencies already allotted to GPS services.

So this new DISH announcement of a potential breakthrough could be a real blessing for wireless users.
