Ligado Networks Statement on Opposition to NTIA Petition for Stay

RESTON, VA. May 29, 2020 – Ligado Networks today filed an opposition to NTIA’s petition for a stay of the FCC’s order approving Ligado’s license modification application. The company also issued the following statement:

“NTIA’s extraordinary request to stop the FCC’s decision from taking effect is outrageous. Because NTIA did not win on the merits, it has instead tried to turn routine policy disagreements into a lockdown of the FCC’s regular and proper process. The FCC’s order does not harm NTIA; rather, it is NTIA that would harm Ligado and the American public by halting the company’s progress toward building industrial 5G networks that will enhance economic competitiveness, create jobs and protect our national security.”
