The article discusses the wireless situation where long-term evolution (LTE) operators need a way to push more data to the consumer with cheaper network architecture while Wi-Fi operators needs a way for billing customers who think Wi-Fi should be free. Topics cited include technical directions to explore namely LTE-LAA and LWA and the ability of mobile operators like Sprint and T-Mobile USA to charge a price for wireless data as they pay cable operators a roaming fee for using Wi-Fi network.
