The minister of communication Sergey Popkov told press that he wanted to offer Belarusian government to force free VoIP services (like Viber and Skype) to share with their profit with government. Technology of VoIP is used not only in telephony, but also while voice transmitting in systems of IP – warning systems, in webinar transmission, during online films watching or in online video games. That’s why there appeared such discussion according to this topic.
According to Popkov words, in Belarus besides social resources from Beltelecomm and mobile operators there are such technologies as Skype and Viber that don’t put any money in development of Belarusian technologies. And that’s why minister wants to offer government to monetize these services and force operators to share their profit.
