Chicago - In a very sudden and unexpected, yet irrational and backward step, Moroccan telecommunication companies Maroc Telecom, Meditel, and Inwi cut Morocco’s Voice over IP (VoIP) services without any notice to their clients. Legally, they can. Since the Moroccan Telecommunication Law grants the rights to VoIP services only to companies holding a license to operate in the country. For now, only those three companies hold that right.
