TRA rumoured to reconsider VoIP

Uncertainty reigns over whether the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) is planning to lift the ban on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the UAE. According to Gulf News,

the ban on internet telephony or VoIP is to be lifted from December.

However, local newspaper 7 Days said that reports that the ban on VoIP was to be removed were premature.

The free paper quoted a representative from the TRA who said: “These reports are not accurate. The lifting of the VoIP ban has not been decided in any way at all.

When such an announcement is ready to be made, then the TRA will let everyone know.” Calls made by IT Weekly to the TRA were not returned by press time.
