Many Digicel Haiti mobile customers are upset over the company’s decision to block Voice over IP (VoIP) trafic to services like Viber, Tango and Nimbuzz. One customer has started an online petition. Over 400 people have already signed the petition which spreading quicky via social media…
The petition, translated from French, says:
Following the decision of the Digicel to block the use of VOIP applications on the grounds that they are unlicensed.
Me being a consumer, user and supporter of free software and applications for digital media such as: Computers, tablets, phones etc … I run this petition to say no to this arbitrary decision.
The message is clear,
“No blocking of free apps, we pay for internet data, we have the right to use them as we see fit, with applications that make us happy. It is not up to Digicel to impose on us what we must do.”
