Whatsapp could be banned in Saudi Arabia
Dubai: Popular free unlimited messaging service ` Whatsapp` that allows users to send unlimited text messages over 3G telecom networks or WiFi, could be banned in Saudi Arabia due to its `non-compliance` to the local rules.
The US based apps company has reportedly denied meeting the ` regulatory requests` made by Saudi Arabia telecommunication authorities, which might lead to the app`s possible ban from the network.
Another popular Internet messenger service `Viber` was banned from the network due to non-compliance to the country`s rule.
However, after a week`s suspension Viber was restored citing technical reasons for its non-availability but no clear specification was given about whether it complied to the rules or found `other ways`, the report added.
