Anti-Skype?

Hehe! Looks like the entry of the operator dictator!
Don't get me wrong ... I ain't saying that this software won't sell.. I am just saying the operators ain't gonna blow their horn about buying the sofware. I mean, even the Gulf countries never stopped Kazaa! And anyhow, the bandwidth which 3G will provide, is supposed to support video conferencing, so how much bandwidth is actually taken by Skype, IM and other P2P software.... is gonna be lil drops in the ocean.
The juicy parts:
"They're all telling me they hate Skype and they're telling me that they want to do something about Skype," said Bannerman in a telephone interview. "If you have something in your network that is costing you money and raiding your business model, I assure you you're going to do something about it."

Lets see!
