It is now legal to use voicebased applications on the Internet.

In a significant policy shift, the Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRA) said on Monday it had permitted UAE's telecom service providers to enable such applications.

It means telecom giants Eitsalat and du can make third-party services like Skype, Vonage, Zfone, MindSpring or Minisip available to Internet users at a potential cost more bearable than the telephone tariff.

Satellite-based telephone firms Thuraya and Yahsat can also tie up with such third party providers and extend the option to consumers. Till now it was not permissible to do so. The regulatory authority's policy framework allows licenced telecom operators to provide the Voice over Internet Protocol, better known by its acronym VoIP, to all categories of customers.
