Yearly Tradition of Predicting Etisalat's Legalization of VoIP

Every year Gitex 2008 participants pass our exhibit, tag us because of our DIDX shirts (which triggers a local VoIP discussion), and chat with us at receptions regarding the rumor that Etisalat, the government monopoly of telephony in United Arab Emirates... will legalize VoIP by the new year.

A Qatar online newsletter mentions the same in this article UAE May Ease Net Calls Rule.

I ask, "Who benefits most financially when there are restrictions on voice over Internet? Gray voice business, no doubt. Not the government."

I've got an appointment with Etisalat this week, actually two, one with carrier relations and the other with marketing. We'll see what happens.
