UAE telecom operator Etisalat has unblocked Skype, the VoIP calling service, in the UAE,
according to emirates 24|7 Etisalat confirmed this in a tweeted response to us: “Hi, yes it’s now accessible to all Etisalat users :)” one of the telecom operator’s Twitter accounts (@Etisalat_Care) said in a response to emirates 24|7 tweeted query.

Emirates 24|7 says that they were able to login to skype website and download the app without any problems.

Nevertheless, it isn’t the first time that a Skype ‘ban’ has lifted in the UAE. The ban has seemingly been lifted on more than one occasion in the past, with this website reporting in mid-March about Skype’s accessibility in the UAE, when du users were able to use the service.
