well. duh. that is precisely the intentionLTE-U has reportedly received criticism from Google, the Wi-Fi Alliance, cable operators, and others in the telecommunications sector who warn that it could squeeze Wi-Fi out of the spectrum on which it runs – specifically, the unlicensed frequencies in the 5GHz band.
Do you realy believe that ?America is quite far from South Africa. I doubt there will be much impact on South Africans
Actually could happen faster here than in the US.America is quite far from South Africa. I doubt there will be much impact on South Africans
Yup, been using my Sammy S6 for a few months now making normal cell calls over Wi-Fi.Do you realy believe that ?
"Vodafone to launch Voice over LTE and Wi-Fi calling services this summer"
They are already making calls on WIFI here http://businesstech.co.za/news/mobile/96047/vodacom-launches-voice-over-wifi-calling/
Here you have it from the horses mouth .Actually could happen faster here than in the US.
With no new spectrum allocated for LTE, SA operators have to look at any possible solution to get more spectrum to increase user throughput. LTE-U might just be one of them.
Excuse me but doesn't that specifically prove that flooding WIFI in any spectrum degrades performance on that spectrum, hence that they are going to screw things up.Qualcomm has worked to assuage concerns, demonstrating during a recent media event that switching one Wi-Fi access point in an area to LTE-U increased the performance of the remaining 8 wireless networks.
Think it might well be the other way around.Excuse me but doesn't that specifically prove that flooding WIFI in any spectrum degrades performance on that spectrum, hence that they are going to screw things up.
Scew u white boi! Y you no use 5ghz?!
5GHz is mainly used by people that run links outside their houses. Think of all the internet-over-WiFi providers, they all run 5GHz. As well as links between buildings. And 802.11n and 802.11ac can both use it.
morningThink it might well be the other way around.
The mobile operators have the tools (expensive) and know-how to do proper frequency planning. However this won't help.
As already seen above, many Wi-Fi operators just put booster amps on everything (illegal) and screw it up for everyone around.
Been saying for years that Wi-Fi operators are their own biggest enemy and can't see this change anytime soon.
