VoIP Update - Ambassador Response
The following was an e-mail received by one of the Vonage-forum's members from the U.S. Embasssy. Again, it would be great if other nationalities could submit similar petitions to their embassies.
To Vonage Customers in Qatar,
In recent days, the Embassy has heard from a number of Americans in Qatar who have lost access to the internet telephone service. The Vonage company in the U.S. has confirmed that the cutoff was initiated hear in Qatar.
Earlier today, I spoke with the minister for Economy and Commerce, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Ahmad Al Thani, to express concern about the loss of this service. I noted that many Americans private citizens as well as military personnel rely on this service to keep in touch with families and conduct personal business back in the United States.
The Minister assured me that he would look into the mater right away. The Embassy will follow up in hopes that this service is restored as soon as possible.
Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.
