Did last night's US presidential debate Wi-Fi rip-off break the law?

Ran into a variant of this a while back, in the form of mysterious network dropouts forcing me back onto expen$ive 4G.

Strangely enough when I tried sharing out that the same thing happened, seems particularly bad around Town so suspecting noisy imported 2.4G security cameras here resorted to switching channels to 6 and that helped somewhat though the range still sucked ie 3 feet!!

I'd be interested to see exactly how these cameras are allowed to operate considering that there is no distinction between intentional and accidental jamming in law.

Certainly jamming WiFi with deauth packets should be just as illegal as jamming 3G/4G/etc, license free does not mean license to intentionally deny access for the purposes of profiteering.
