Would-be LTE-U carriers told to take these tests, or just leave off

The Wi-Fi Alliance's long-awaited – and controversial – LTE-U Coexistence Test plan has landed.

The reg-walled test plan is supposed to help work out if LTE-U – the mobile carriers' plan to use unlicensed spectrum if nobody else is talking – can coexist with Wi-Fi.

Carriers, already under a spectrum squeeze, are hoping they can pitch their tents on Wi-Fi's campground, promising that LTE-U won't disrupt Wi-Fi.

Negotiations between the groups and America's Federal Communications Commission have been tense, and at one point, Qualcomm complained its input to the test plan had been ignored.
