Non-home wifi is not trustable sorry.
Thats why you run a VPN tunnel.
With the shift to smartphone that have always-on LTE connectivity, Wifi in public places is becoming less and less interesting. That, and for some reason, those systems are always so freaking slow. I don't see why they can't deliver 50+mbps just like LTE.
Wifi at ohare is fast, i used it a couple of times when i was there. Its not like the one at most public libraries, starbucks or mcdonals. Gyms even have worse wifi. Its always 1mb or less at my location, at peak times you wont even listen to internet radio. But its also the same place that runs only wall tvs adjusted to FM channels for sound. They are like in 90s

If Google's incursion at Starbucks and CableWiFi are any indication, many public WiFi hotspots are getting a much-needed speed boost.
It may, or may not be equivalent to the alleged 50Mbps LTE you cite, but it in a meter-anxiety world, they will remain quite relevant.
Next Gen Wifi
When I'm traveling and I need wifi (say my 3G card won't work), I'm desperate to find Wifi. Moving this technology forward so that it's faster and easier to use sounds like a win-win to me.

My gym's wifi is pretty good, like 20mbps or something, but most other other Wifi systems I've used are horrible. Although it's not that useful unless I want to download podcasts, as the one area that has poor cell coverage also has really bad wifi. The one at the Ted Stevens International Airport was one of the worst I've ever used, no joke. The tubes must have gotten clogged.

I don't know. Most of my friends seem to be shifting to bring your own device with little to no LTE, just simply to save money.
The days of throwing money at a phone for me at least are long gone, so I do appreciate wifi when I can get it.
Most people are on family plans, where contracts make sense...
