Skype and similar PC to phone VoIP services may be banned in China

Bad news! According to a report publish on Yahoo news, China government has pledged to restrict internet phone services. As per the report, "We are carrying out with relevant authorities a campaign to crack down on illegal Voice over Internet Protocol phone services, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said in a circular posted online earlier this month."

Vice-minister Xi Guohua said communications between computers (PC-to-PC) remain open to all service providers in China, which has the world's biggest Internet population at 450 million. That mean this will only effect PC to phone services.

This step is very much towards giving profit to state-owned carriers. Usually call rates provided by Skype and other similar providers for PC to phone calls are much cheaper than rates by state owned carries.
