The article Why is my WiFi slow? Why does my WiFi keep dropping out? addresses the technical issues of why WiFi sucks, but just treats the situation as given from G-d. It’s not. This is what happens when the mantra of “all government is bad” gets applied to the FCC. They do nothing and let an essential service develop in a way that’s not reliable.
And, by the way, because the article only covers current problems, it doesn’t talk about one of the bigger technical fiasco’s of the 20th/21st century, the woefully inadequate WEP encryption that was the WiFi standard for more than 10 years.
