Comments of the Ad-Hoc Public Interest Spectrum Coalition In the Matter of Skype Communications S.A.R.L

These comments support the idea that as broadband access becomes increasingly available over wireless phones, principles that applied to the wireline development of the Internet need to be applied to wireless access as well.
