Viber in Kingdom of Saudi ArabiaAfter a day of Saudi Arabia’s ban on Viber, last June 6, 2013 Talmon Marco made a statement that Viber would be restored soon. The report was released by BBC News online.

Talmon Marco is an American-Israeli entrepreneur who founded the Viber Media. This company that runs Viber is based in Cyprus and has development centers in Israel and Belarus. h

Viber refused to supply data demanded by Saudi officials. The  Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia started the block of Viber last June 5 because Viber did not provide any means to be monitored.

Many expatriates and Saudi nationals alike for sure want to have the Viber restored to have a free means of communicating with their families and friends via their smartphones and tablets.
