Why is VoIP better than standard phone services ? The last decade has seen significant advancements in VoIP technology. Moving forward at an incredibly fast pace, VoIP communication seduces more and more users around the world both for personal and business →
Maroc Telecom, the Moroccan telephone operator, has recently blocked access to several websites that offer free VoIP telephone service.
The blocking has affected the Skype service that most Moroccans use to call family, friends, relatives and customers abroad.
Moreover, the ban has affected access to TeamSpeak and other services that offer the VoIP functionality.
With this decision Maroc Telecom, which is known due to its predatory commercial practices, intends to shield itself against competitors and pushes its users to pay for services and quit using free online services such as Skype, Viber, TeamSpeak and others.
The Maroc Telecom is the former state telecom monopoly; it has been sold to Vivendi, a French company. “Maroc Telecom is the default Internet provider for most users in Morocco.”
