Are nonexistent connected cars slowing our WiFi?

The FCC can easily fix the problem

Getting connected to Wi-Fi can be a frustrating experience. Even if you can find a signal, your connection may be slow or unreliable. Sometimes the culprit may be many other devices trying to use the same radio frequencies at the same time. The FCC should now help alleviate this problem by creating a large, contiguous swath of high-capacity, unlicensed spectrum — the kind used for Wi-Fi.
