Egypt prohibits mobile VoIP calls

[ame] Amr Badawy, the executive president of Egypt's National Telecommunication Regulatory Authority, has announced the start of a ban on international calls made through mobile internet connections, Reuters has reported. 'The ban is on Skype on mobile internet, not on fixed, and this is due to the fact it is against the law since it bypasses the legal gateway,' he said. Under Egyptian law, international calls must pass through a network controlled by majority state-owned Telecom Egypt.
