Interesting Poll in the UAE

I blogged about Skype being blocked in the UAE before (
1 and 2)

A recent poll run over the past four weeks asked visitors to the popular technology portal, ‘Do you feel the current VoIP (voice over internet) restrictions in the UAE are limiting your business's potential growth?’.

Of the 1492 users that responded, more than three quarters (just over 77%) answered ‘Yes, very much’, with a further 12.1% confirming, ‘To a degree, yes’. Less than 11% of respondents thought the VoIP ban was having no effect on their organisation’s growth. VoIP websites, such as and, have been banned for months - and in some cases years - in the UAE.
