The most useful categories for wireless would be  stationary,
mobile(reliable at speed) and directional.

Convenience, Coverage and Bandwidth are variables. If you
drive out of range, your GSM mobile service is useless.

Though if you wave your phone around on top of  a hill, you
may pick up a signal or you could install a Satellite dish or
larger antennae on the roof of your car (or TV van).

Spectrum allocation is another variable.
