Qatar regulator takes aim at mobile spam, unwanted services

The Communications Regulatory Authority said yesterday that it plans to consult Qatar’s two major telecom service providers Ooredoo and Vodafone on the new code of conduct. The government said consumers must consent to receive a service before they are charged, but provided no specific details about the new planned measures.
