GPS receivers will be safe from the proposed LightSquared wireless network, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said Tuesday.

LightSquared plans to develop a 4G wireless broadband network, using both satellite and terrestrial coverage. This has raised concerns over potential interference with GPS receivers.

The Hill reports the FCC can not guarantee a review of the LightSquared network can be completed by September, but Genachowski said he wants LightSquared and GPS to co-exist.

“We’re not going to do anything that creates problems for GPS safety and service,” Genachowski said at a briefing.

According to Broadcasting & Cable, the FCC directed the interference issue be resolved before LightSquared could offer the service.
