Errrr... What is the actual change between step 2 and step 3? That the user does not have to select it - isn't this implied by user and/or the operator selects WiFi already in step 2?

I guess the main difference is that now this is permission based, user has to manually select the access point and/or Login. This will no longer be the case. In certain cases users may not want to be on WiFi but they may have no option.
