Are cable companies bullying wireless operators in the LTE-U vs. Wi-Fi debate?

Cable companies are "moving in overdrive to create fear, uncertainty and doubt around the proposed rollout of LTE-U," according to Media Freedom's Mike Wendy.

"Big Cable," he said, is creating hysteria around possible radio interference with Wi-Fi, "hoping that the FCC helps it forestall or squash this nascent technological competition under the guides of protecting Wi-Fi." In short, Wendy accuses the cable industry of being, well, bullies.
