Officials in Qatar have no plans at present to block VoIP services in the country, Qatar Telecom (QTel) COO Sheikh Fahad bin Jassim Al Thani told The Peninsula. A growing number of Qatari residents are using VoIP services for international calls to avoid high charges levied by Qtel. Sheikh Fahad said that Qtel's internet service was designed to accessing data and not for phone calls, to VoIP users might experience interruptions. This has resulted in speculation that Qtel was deliberately blocking VoIP services, a claim denied by the COO.
