There are no blobless WiFi AC adapters. Moreover you'd look at "comparison of open source wireless drivers" Wikipedia page, you'll see that all the Intel adapters require the binary blobs to function - and it's really hard to trust Intel after their ME trickery. The best freedom-respecting WiFi adapter is from Atheros ath9k family, AR9462 - and it was a quite wise decision of Librem 5 to pick it. I could only hope that it will be included to a new revision of Pinephone, since it's significantly more affordable.
