Abu Dhabi: The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has instructed telecom service providers in the UAE to support people of determination by waiving the Dh50 monthly fee for using video call apps, namely C’Me and BOTIM.

TRA’s decision is in support of Arab Deaf Week.

Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri, TRA director-general, affirmed the importance of providing people with special needs the support to enhance their participation and integration in society. “Our efforts are inspired by our long tradition of social integration, equal opportunities and care for all citizens,” he said.
