Skype Asks FCC to Open Cellular Networks

Slashdot post says,

"Skype has just asked the FCC to force wireless phone companies to open their networks to all comers. Skype essentially wants to turn the wireless phone companies into just another network of the kind currently operated on the ground. This would require carriers to allow any phone to be used on their networks, and for any application.

Given the competition that exists within the industry, is this needed?"
Coming from the carrier perspective I say, "no."

What say you?

Wireless is Fun is fanning the net neutrality flames and they're backing Skype all the way.
