U.A.E. Goes Back on Blackberry Ban
DUBAI—The United Arab Emirates said Friday it has reached a “regulatory compliant” solution with Blackberry maker Research In Motion, averting a ban on key Blackberry services that would have come into force Monday.
Blackberry services in the UAE won’t be suspended on Oct. 11 and will continue to operate normally, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority, or TRA, said in an emailed statement.
In August, the regulator said it would suspend key Blackberry services—including instant messaging, email, and web browsing—as of October 11 over national security concerns if an agreement wasn’t reached.
