This is called being backward thinking retards. If people could get something for cheaper price and great quality, why ban it?

This is the same backward thinking that drove MTC’s management to Bahrain and made Kuwait the only country that is covered by MTC that still charges premium prices for phonecalls to the countries covered by MTC.

This is really bad news…. I wonder when will q8 ever try moving forward rather than drive reverse and see how much more can they make people regret for being here 🙂 So far my skype works fine….

They can’t block skype calls easily because it is working as P2P and does not have fixed address.

I wouldn’t worry about it .. blocking skype isn’t as easy as it seems.

This is not something new. It’s considered “stealing international calls” when you use skype.

Remember all the news items in the newspaper about the police arresting people who steal international calls (at first I thought it had something to do with jacking into people’s lines and using their numbers), they’re simply using VoIP.

They’re fighting tooth and nail to ban Skype, but thankfully Kuwait’s current internet infrastructure makes it pretty difficult to accomplish.

Besides, you’re surrounded by incompetence over in that ministry.

I use yahoo voice
My professor suggested vonage and ooma hub ==> try amazon, where you only pay one time and then the calls always free.

I use something else – and the MOC keeps banning and all the companies keep finding workarounds . . . 😉

VOIP is illegal, but they seem to focus on the poorest Indians who help other Indians who don’t have computers to call home (that’s what they call stealing phone services) and leave the rest of us alone. Every now and then mine goes funny, and then is OK again. They declared it illegal over a year ago.
