Already a solved provlem
As many readers of this publication are no doubt aware, there are already hundreds of local service providers in the US delivering broadband via unlicensed spectrum.  With coverage of over 50% of the population in-country, and increasing growth into 2nd and 3rd world countries, Wireless ISPs or WISPs have been busy solving the 'broadband problem' for 10 years now.

We don't need government subsidies to do it, only revenue from satisfied customers.
We're small businesses that are part of the community, we don't need political favours.

We are independent operators, and not easily coerced into restricting traffic or content, therefore we are creating and preserving the potential for freedom of expression online.

The current generation of available hardware enables small outfits to go toe-to-toe with nationwide corporations, and the next 60Ghz generation such as Ignite-Networks equipment, will enable direct competition with fiber deployments.

Google, Facebook and other large entities spin this as a new solution.  It's not.

LTE-U is no substitute for licensed LTE and 5G
The problem with LTE-U in 5 Ghz WiFi and 3.5 Ghz CBRS band is that the max power output is capped to 1 watt, which severely restricts the range of each small cell to a few hundred feet max and is in noway a substitute for a 10 watt licensed macro cell.

Accordingly, it is not possible to build a nationwide network out of only LTE-U cells, there has to be a mix between licensed and unlicensed cell sites.

If Google is serious about starting a broadband network, then it better stard bidding on spectrum licenses.
