Everyone who lives in a house built with thick walls or reinforced concrete, or who relies on a WiFi router that typically has a dozen clients connected at the same time, knows how much WiFi is actually worth.

I wonder if that's partly a matter of different customs in building methods ...it seems that light frame wooden construction is quite popular in the US (also, suburban sprawl might help with less contention) - while relatively rare in the EU for example, where buildings typically use more solid methods (and people - so also routers - live more densely)

Alas, US is such big and profligate market that it can greatly influence the overall direction.
