Previous calls for enhanced coverage have mostly focussed on cellular, and previous efforts to provide widespread Wi-Fi “municipal” coverage have generally been seen as a failure. The steps set out in the previous section would move Wi-Fi back centre-stage in the world of communications. Is this plausible, and have lessons been learnt from previous attempts to deploy widespread Wi-Fi?
