Which Carriers Is LightSquared Working With?

5:40 PM -- By my count, Long Term Evolution (LTE) wholesale venture LightSquared has been linked with three major carriers so far.

The U.S. operators supposedly interested in renting 4G capacity from LightSquared include:

The Harbinger Capital Partners LP venture says it has signed its first deals with operators now and expects more announcements too. The last time I spoke to company reps they also hinted that not all the deals involve traditional cellular carriers.

It's certainly possible that cable operators like Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE: TWC) could be kicking LightSquared's tires too.

I would expect that the CTIA Show is the next logical place for any LightSquared announcements. Read about Tuesday's news here.
