Well, in the US at least, corporations are people, so...

But that aside, I don't know if there is anything that can be done really, 
unlicensed is unlicensed and if it's not free for everybody to use, what 
is it?

Also, isn't it pretty much the same players in wifi and LTE space, 
Qualcomm, Broadcom and the others, they're in both spaces and I don't see 
what they have to gain to make wifi worse?

And 802.11 isn't really open either, and the unlicensed spectrum still 
requires that devices are approved to be operated there, right, so if FCC 
and the likes do their job properly then these technologies should 
work together at least on the RF level?
