Former Nextel Chief Considered for LightSquared Post [Reuters]

by

Reuters reports that troubled startup mobile broadband provider LightSquared has set its sights on veteran telecom executive Timothy Donahue as a possible replacement for departing Chief Executive Sanjiv Ahuja.

Ahuja resigned in the wake of a decision by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to revoke LightSquared’s provisional license to build out an L-band wireless network because of concerns about GPS interference.

Donahue could help LightSquared fight its case in Washington, Reuters said: During his time as chief executive of Nextel, he worked with the FCC on a spectrum rebanding project to overcome concerns about interference between Nextel’s network and public safety services.
