High speed broadband is something that many people are keen to enjoy, and those that use mobile broadband services whilst out and about are eager to benefit from the next generation of mobile broadband networks known as 4G networks. It has now been announced that they could do this by going through the US electronics retailer Best Buy.
According to reports the US electronics retailer Best Buy is going to be offering LTE based 4G broadband services based on the LightSquared service. The retailer has formed a partnership with LightSquared, which was recently announced at the CTIA wireless industry conference in Orlando, Florida by Sanjiv Ahuja, LightSquared chief executive.
During a speech at the conference Ahuja stated: “Working together we are targeting a trial in the first quarter of 2012, and over the next few weeks, we will provide a lot more details on this.”
