Well, right. :-) No provider of voice networks wants value-added 
services to go away and be replaced by OTT applications for whom they're 
just a low-margin, flat-rate, 95% percentile-billed transport layer.

To a point, you can understand where they're coming from. They do the 
hard, capital-intensive work of building out the network, while some 
clever mobile app out of Silicon Valley pockets all the profits. That 
wasn't the assumption from which they built anything.
