Well that was a problem when the first iPhone came out with only GPRS network. Now 4G LTE is even faster then my god damn ADSL Home network. (Sigh). In the next 2 - 3 years the world will move to LTE-A, micro-cell, VoLTE, and hopefully pCell. The mobile network has never been better.
Of course this is mainly a Asia and EU perspective where LTE deployment are ahead of US. But it is not like US mobile network aren't improving. And we are very likely to see the first LTE only network in the next few years, when the cost to support 2G and 3G users become a burden for Teleco ( 3G likely to come off first ).
Or, you know, you could answer the question instead of posting completely irrelevant nonsense.

Free WIFI = can see what you are surfing. Thats the trade off.

Unless you have a VPN.
That’s evident by your long-term dislike of Apple.
I threw out my back while gallivanting a few years ago. Never again. I now limit my exploits to just wing-dinging, shindiging, and hootinannification. It’s a real foofaraw, I’ll tell you.

But did Steve want it to work only on Apple products? Just sayin?
If it did, that could solve a lot of the security problems; make iOS and Mac devices provide AppleID credentials (linked to a credit card for identity verification) to get access to the free Wi-Fi that is provided by guest Apple Airport routers (potentially auth could also use the iCloud control panel on Windows).
Could also limit access on the router by applying bandwidth and data caps, with parental filters and blocking websites that figure lowly in Trust tests, or are known providers of illegal material, all synced back to whitelists held at Apple.
That could be a whole new element to iCloud - buy into the Apple ecosystem and get access to free Wi-Fi in all localities where there is an Airport Extreme nearby.

This sort of thing shouldn't be far off with cellular tech:

Other than the obvious benefit, anything specific? Would a proxy server be sufficient for your 'needs' until AI offers SSL?
