Re: happens soon
@JohnDrake Right now, I am having a problem with the Wi-Fi connection on my iPhone. The service provider is AT&T. Continually have to keep checking into my Wi-Fi network. Never happened before. My boyfriend's phone is under the same plan, and he's not having that problem. Wonder what is wrong.

Re: standardized
It's great when all parties agree to follow the standards. I hope this convergence is actually as good as expected and happens on schedule.

I hope this convergence happens soon, but for right now I cannot use a cell phone to call from my barn to my house because of the poor coverage. It is easier to use a citizens' band radio for that, right now, anyway.

According to the report the convergence of 5G and Wi-Fi will lead to a better user experience because a significant amount of data traffic from smartphones use Wi-Fi access. That will also create more opportunity for both Wi-Fi and cellular provders.

Re: standardized
Agreeing to as noted "Convergence of 5G and WiFi potentially could deliver big benefits to mobile operators, enterprise and public WiFi solution providers including cable operators," seems to be just where broadband should naturally head for the next few years, finding ways to combine the advanced technological leaps possbile to benefit operators and the users both.

<some cellular operators want a standardized solution, so they gain improved visibility and control into the configuration and management of WiFi access networks.> that does make sense. I think that has been the general trend for technology in the past, coming together in some form of standardization.

Wi-Fi is the foundation of the connected home for consumers; yet, it’s often a source of frustration. With the imminent release of the new Wi-Fi 6 standard – combined with a strong Managed Wi-Fi offer – service providers can reverse subscriber frustration while tapping into new revenue streams.
