Harbinger Capital Partners' wireless broadband venture has struck another deal, despite continuing questions about the project's viability.
LightSquared will provide 4G services for ClearTalk Wireless, a flat-rate wireless phone company in the U.S. west and southwest. The deal will provide greater connectivity for ClearTalk's rural customers.

The ClearTalk deal follows a major $13.5 billion deal between LightSquared and Sprint Nextel Corp., under which the latter will actually build the LightSquared network.
