FCC Allows Further Testing of LTE Service in Unlicensed Spectrum Used by Wi-Fi

The FCC on Friday approved further testing of the approach, known as LTE-U (U for unlicensed), which has been at the center of a struggle between tech heavyweights. For months now, Verizon, Qualcomm and others have been pushing LTE-U, promising that it would allow for more efficient data use by cellular devices while also insisting that it can be a good neighbor with Wi-Fi devices. – Ina FriedIna Fried, Re/code
