Haiti - Digicel Now Blocking VoIP services like Viber, Tango and Nimbuzz

Digicel Haiti has just announced that they are now blocking some Voice over IP (VoIP) services like Viber, Tango and Nimbuzz that allow users to make Free PC to Mobile Calls and free mobile video calls over 3G, 4G, & WiFi... So if you were enjoying these VoIP services to communicate with family and friends inside/outside of Haiti, you are out of luck...

Haiti - Digicel Block VOIP Viber Tango Nimbuzz etc...

Many Haitians use these services to communicate with family and friends in Haiti and around the world... I know many people who use Tango, WhatsApp, and other services to stay in touch over long distances... So what happens now?

According to Haiti news reports, Digicel said that as of midnight June 17, 2014 some VoIP services like Viber, Tango and Nimbuzz have been blocked on its network.

I am still trying absorb all the information so I can sumarize it for you but I thought I would bring it to your attention...

Are you a victim of this Digicel decision? Do you agree with the decision by the Haiti mobile phone companies and Internet service providers to BLOCK Voice over IP (VoIP) in Haiti?

What do you think about this?

It is totally unacceptable.

The reasons given do not stand.

Why would they block us while we pay for the data. We do what we want with the data we buy. They cannot block us and force us to buy credits to place calls either in Haiti or
