Cell networks' LTE-U will kill your Wi-Fi, say digital rights bods


Managed unlicensed bands don't really work in practice. You either get tragedy of the commons aka the 2.4 GHz ism band, a semi private park which is what we tried in New Zealand under the term managed spectrum park which has not been the roaring success it looked on paper because as soon as people pay any kind of money they want exclusivity and tenure, or you have full blown private spectrum which creates barriers to market entry and you are dammed any way at all in which you try and allocate it.
