Even without traveling as far as Asia anyway also in Europe the situation is pretty bleak – GSM operators love to block VoIP calls. And so do many hotels, organizations .. Using VoIP can be really challenging at times.
I know for sure that many of our partners in France and Italy complained about it – even operators like Vodafone have such limitations. Some of them request upgrading to some special unlimited tariff ..
