What is the footprint of lorawan networks and what's the velocity of 
growth? What's the cost per square foot both capex and operations, 
maintaining & monitoring lorawan? What's that compared to the WiFi 
install base, i.e. now we have train even installers and maintainers on 
purpose built technology vs just use what most people know because it's 
common? This all looks like ethernet, token ring, fddi, netbios, decnet, 
etc. where the single approach of IP over WiFi/ethernet with fiber 
fronthaul wave guides and backhauls' waveguides per the ISP seems the 
effective way forward. I don't think it's in society's interest to have 
so disparate networks technologies as we have learned from IP and the 
internet. My guess is lorawan will never get built out across the planet 
as has been done for IP. I can tell that every country is adopting IP 
because they're using a free IP tool to measure their networks.
