Maroc Telecom accused of blocking VoIP applications

6 Aug 2014

Maroc Telecom subscribers have reportedly complained about not being able to access voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) applications, namely Viber, for the last two weeks, prompting speculation that the operator has blocked free VoIP operations yet again. Agence Ecofin notes that the service is still accessible over Inwi and Meditel’s respective networks.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, in February 2012 it emerged that Maroc Telecom was reportedly blocking access to a number of VoIP applications, with free VoIP services such as Skype and TeamSpeak seeing their access cut.
