Executive Summary

Frustrated with the way that wireless carriers choose which applications they offer and which phones customers can use on their networks, a growing number of companies and interest groups are pushing to place these decisions in the hands of consumers. These groups want the FCC to take away some of the restrictive power that the wireless network operators hold over their networks in order to create an open network where consumers are free to use the handset of their choice and run any application they choose. The opposing wireless carriers want to retain the control they have historically retained over their wireless networks.
