Digicel has blocked VoIP access (Viber, Tango etc) in Haiti, Trinidad and Jamaica. Other cell phone carriers such as Lime have done so as well.  This has generated a firestorm on Caribbean social media, at least one petition and a reaction by the Trinidadian Telecom regulatory body who reinstated VoIPs in Trinidad while it deliberates the issue.

Join host and  Americas Desk Director for Internet Without Borders Alice Backer of www.kiskeacity.com  as I welcome Gerard Best, a tech blogger and T&T Guardian contributor, Michele Marius from the ICT Pulse blog in Jamaica, Pascal Antoine, President of HaitiXchange and tech entrepreneur in Haiti.
