Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin said on Tuesday he was proposing to dismiss a petition from Web-based phone service Skype to force open wireless networks.

Martin said he would circulate a proposal among the four other FCC commissioners dismissing the petition which Skype, a unit of online auction leader eBay Inc, had filed a little over a year ago with the communications regulator.

I kind of see the point. The article says they already opened up some spectrum in the 700 MHz band.

You don't throw away a pair of old shoes until you have some new ones, so let's see how open networks goes in the existing free spectrum before opening up all of it.
