Mobile operators in Sweden trying to block Skype and Viber...

Swedish telecom operators want to implement technologies that will block mobile phone users in Sweden from making free calls using services like Skype and Viber.

A spokesperson for telecom service provider Telia told Sveriges Radio (SR) that the technology exists to block users' ability to use mobile voice over IP (VoIP) telephony services.

"It's going to mean that there will be service plans where it's not included so it won't work," Telia spokesperson Charlotte Z├╝ger told SR.

 "I believe, quite simply, that we need to be able to get paid for our various services no matter what, as different service plans include different things." Full story...
