The feature has been blocked by the Telecoms Regulation Authority (TRA) in the county since it was launched in November last year, in line with a similar block on other Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers.
Authorities are yet to confirm the new development.
The UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority said no changes have been made to their policy about communications through internet protocol.
According to a TRA statement, "VoIP services are still a prerogative of the licensed providers who reserve the right to provide such services through their networks. Companies wishing to offer such services must coordinate with the licensed telecom providers in the UAE ."
