Saudi Arabia Blocks Viber
CITC,Â Communication and Information Technology Commission (CITC), the regulatory authority in Saudi Arabia, have recently announced that they have decided to block the famous VOIP application, Viber in Saudi Arabia.
â€œViber app has been blocked starting on June 5, 2013, because it does not currently meet the regulatory requirements and laws in Saudi Arabia,â€ CITC said inÂ statementÂ published Wednesday on their website.
Announcing its decision to ban Viber, CITC reiterated their intention to take measures against other apps and services that will be violating the rules and regulation set by CITC.
There are other application which could be possibly blocked also in Saudi Arabia, likeÂ WhatsApp, Skype and other social media apps.
I will have to test other application such as Google+, Facebook and other if it will still work. I will update this post soon.
