WhatsApp’s latest feature hasn’t even landed most mobiles yet, but that hasn’t stopped it from getting banned already.According to reports, the free calling service has just been blocked in the United Arab Emirates by telecoms provider Etisalat.
It’s currently unclear why the ban has been put in place, but it’s likely that the mobile operator simply doesn’t want people making calls for free over its network.The country’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority confirmed in statement that it was up to operators to decide to allow Voice Over Internet Protocol (VIOP), saying: “VoIP services are still a prerogative of the licensed providers who reserve the right to provide such services through their networks.
