Skype, Viber VoIP are not blocked in UAE instead they don't have UAE licence!

Telecom regulatory authority or TRA in UAE has clarified its VoIP licencing and blocking issues of Viber, Skype VoIP apps to make free calls, 

TRA of UAE says, that these third party out of country apps viz Viber, Skype etc. are NOT being blocked or such, instead they have no regulatory licence to run the VoIP service in UAE or from UAE, so no question of being blocking is there, they are not authorized to function thus,

UAE TRA elaborates that the native telcos, the DU and Etisalat are the legal VoIP providers here only as they have the licence to run these service but Viber, Skype etc. dont have such licence and they are encrypted too : )

I have used a few service providers like Voipdiscount, Skype, RingtoIndia, Rebtel, Airtel Global Talk and Freecallee. My two cents,

-Voipdiscount has increased their rates to 1.7c/min.
-Skype Quality is not good. Also, there is connection fee.
-RingtoIndia provides at 1c/min. Pretty good rate. But Quality is very bad.
-Rebtel has managable quality. Only their subscriptions provide cheap rates and I don't use 3000 minutes in a month.
-Freecallee quality is Excellent. Rates are 1.2c/min only. They have recently launched a Flexible talk plan where you can call as low as 0.9c/min to India without monthly subscription or validity period. There is little reduced quality, but it doesn't affect me much with a good Internet connection.
-Airtel talk again provides at 0.1 c/min with the worst quality. Call Drops. False charging. And no Refunds provided.
