LightSquared names new CFO

LightSquared named Marc Montagner as chief financial officer to succeed Michael Montemarano, who has left the company.

The wholesale, wireless broadband network provider said Montagner was executive vice president of sales, marketing and strategy for

SkyTerra, LightSquared's predecessor company.

Montagner was also previously senior vice president of corporate development and mergers and acquisitions for Sprint Nextel Corp., where he

was responsible for all merger and acquisition activities for the company, including the $70 billion merger between Sprint and Nextel.

Sprint on Sunday gave billionaire Philip Falcone's wireless venture a 30-day extension to a Dec. 31 deadline to get Federal Communications

Commission clearance to operate its network. Getting FCC clearance is a condition of a 15-year fourth-generation spectrum-and-equipment-

sharing accord between the two companies.

The Reston, Va.-based company hopes to build out a 4G network to cover 260 million Americans by 2016 and compete with carriers such as

Verizon Wireless and Clearwire Corp. in selling spectrum wholesale.

LightSquared has been buffeted by criticism from lawmakers, the Defense Department and device manufacturers who say the company's airwaves

can jam GPS signals. Trimble Navigation Ltd. and Deere & Co., which both make GPS-based navigation devices, have said that their devices

previously operated with no interference and the companies shouldn't have to pay for any fixes.
China Telecom May Expand to France, Germany After U.K.

China Telecommunications Corp., the nation’s largest fixed-line phone company, plans to expand into more European markets after starting

its first overseas wireless service in the U.K.

The service, aimed at Chinese residents, will begin in the U.K. by the end of March and expand to Germany and France if it’s successful,

Ou Yan, managing director for China Telecom Europe, said in an e-mail yesterday. There are 2 million Chinese living in western Europe, Liu

Changhai, the China Telecom executive responsible for regional development, said yesterday.

In the U.K., China Telecom will target the more than half a million Chinese citizens living in the country and the tourists that will flock

to the Olympic Games in London in June. In China, intensifying competition has led companies including China United Network Communications

Group Co. to cut international roaming fees by as much as 90 percent.

“Our target customers are the Chinese communities,” Liu said in an e-mailed response to questions. “We are exploring a new market.”

London-based China Telecom Europe is a subsidiary of the state-owned parent company and isn’t part of publicly traded China Telecom Corp.,

said Jacky Yung, a Hong Kong-based spokesman for the listed unit.

The U.K. service will run on the network of Everything Everywhere, the joint venture between France Telecom SA and Deutsche Telekom AG, the

company said yesterday. The company will become the first Chinese operator to start a mobile virtual network outside China, Liu said.

Roaming Rates

Setting up a mobile virtual network will help China Telecom, the nation’s third-largest wireless carrier, compete on international roaming

rates with China United, according to Neil Juggins, a Hong Kong-based analyst at JI Asia Research Ltd.

China Telecom will lease capacity from Everything Everywhere. It also held talks with Vodafone Group Plc’s wholesale business, people

familiar with the matter said in September.

China Telecom signed a strategic agreement with France Telecom in October to provide services for business customers across each other’s


China Telecom’s wireless service ranks behind China Mobile Ltd. and China Unicom (Hong Kong) Ltd. in the world’s largest mobile market by

users. China had 975 million mobile subscribers at the end of November, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
