Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- Michel Paulin, the CEO of the Morocco-based Meditel, which is 49 per cent-owned by Orange, said this morning during a press briefing that Meditel never asked to block VoIP, further adding that Meditel has to apply the decisions of Morocco’s National Telecommunications Regulatory Agency (well known under its French acronym ANRT), binding decisions.
Among others Paulin stressed that blocking VoIP does not incur losses to Meditel, further noting that decision takers need to examine whether such decisions will affect investment opportunities, and decrease job opportunities [through the use of VoIP applications] for Moroccans.
Paulin added that throughout the VoIP boycott campaign Morocco is witnessing currently, Meditel’s image has been tarnished, with the company being presented as “a Monster.”
It is worth reminding that Michel Paulin will be leaving Meditel soon as he was appointed CEO of SFR few months ago, replacing Eric Denoyer who is leaving the France-based operator as part of a general overhaul of its management structure.
