Internet users in the United Arab Emirates will be able to use internet telephony from December, according to officials from the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA). They say that lifting the ban will allow the two licensed telecom operators, Etisalat and Du, to use VoIP technology. The TRA will publish VoIP rates during the GITEX Exhibition in Dubai later this month.
