LTE doesnít necessarily need LAA.
Spectum is a valuable resource as everyone, including the wireless carriers know. The problem however, is when the Sprint T-Mobile transaction closes, the combined company, whom will be foreign-controlled, will have access to over 300Mhz of airwaves including unlicensed bands. This of course also places established companies like AT&T and Verizon at a substantial deficit and will create competition challenges; it also prevents new entrants from providing services. T-Mobile noted that established carriers like AT&T and verizon would need to spend $1.5Trillion to compete with T-Mobile... Good luck if you want to be a new entrant in this business. Still and today, we lack a digital equivalent to the 1970s CB Radio Services, which have coverage for several miles; and that should change. CBRS was supposed to fix that but T-Mobile (led by attorney John Hunter) and CTIA proposed new rules that favor established industry players. So, Iíve already written a few letters to US Congress and others about this deficit, and companies abilities to compete. As such, and because T-Mobile is in the news, Iíve specifically requested that for each 1Mhz of unlicensed spectrum T-Mobile used to sell a commercial services, T-Mobile should relinquish an equal amount of spectrum for unlicensed use such as long-range WiFi, also and at full-power.

With new technologies like Self Organizing Networks and Spectrum Assignment systems that exist today, spectrum swaps would greatly create benefits that benefit the public at large, eliminate throttling and data caps imposed on customers by those whom manage the nations wireless infrastructure. Hell, you canít even reliably use a cordless phone today without static from an interfereing carrier.
