Banning the making of telephone calls using mobile internet

The National Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (NTRA) issued a decree on 13 March 2010 banning clients of Mobinil, Vodafone, and Itisalat from making telephone calls using modems or mobile internet. The ban was basically directed against Skype application, and even though it was decreed in 2010, yet the restriction on VoIP services is still binding until now. Hence, it is not possible until this very moment to use mobile networks to make calls on Skype or WhatsApp.
