A new ultra-fast wireless Internet network is threatening to overpower GPS signals across the country and interfere with everything from aviation systems to consumer navigation devices.

LightSquared, a satellite wireless internet company, has been given permission to launch broadband Internet service. A network of cell towers will amplify the signals from a LightSquared satelliite. The frequencies are adjacent to the spectrum that is used by GPS. There is a dramatic difference in power with the new system being up to a billion times more powerful.
