Their regulation of frequencies is what allows things like broadcast TV and cellular networks to exist. Otherwise all frequencies would be as badly congested as Wifi. They aren't expected to cover operating expenses with fines on unlicensed spectrum. That doesn't even make sense.

This is a "TV Tax" of barely over $1/person. Way cheaper than what the UK does to pay for their TV spectrum - even ignoring the per capita difference.
