    Honestly I still think its going to be a while before anything is done!

    This is progress and good progress! I still want more drastic steps taken!

      I think ISPs will cove under the Ministry’s pressure but this is not the end of it either.

      The vice minister, Al Mazidi, has offerred to listen to us so we’ll see how things go.

      We want what’s best for Kuwait: consumers, government and service providers.

        To speak to the vice minister? Wow, nice! Do not forget to mention about the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) & up to date submarine communication cables (3TB+) like the ones Saudia Arabia, UAE & Qatar installed in the sea. Best of luck guys!

      • MBH says:

        Mubarak Al-Haza & Hussain Al-Abdullah (see the Team tab) are the ones who got in contact with the vice minister and we’ll help formulate the regulations.

        Inshallah things go well.

    Good to see that the Ministry is finally taking action, though I’ll keep my hopes realistic at most.

    Ripping us off and calling us abusers is a black stain in their history now I can’t believe they’d go so far and low.

  3. MCD says:

    Does this apply to Viva as well? They implanted the cap right with the 4 ISPs without any further notice unlike Zain and Wataniya where they had caps from day 1 as far as I can tell (though Zain might had unlimited internet once.)

    In any case, good job for all involved and hope this gets taken care of fast.

    I’m just a powerless regular internet user like most here but if you ever need a helping hand, just contact me.

    • MBH says:

      Viva & mobile carriers are a separate case that we need to handle differently because of the involved laws & technology (GSM vs DSL).

      They cannot put the cap without prior notice because they’d be changing the service agreed upon in the contract, which means it’s illegal.

      As for you, you aren’t powerless! The fact that you took a few minutes and made this comment means you know what’s the problem & you’re aware of its implications.
      You can tell others and educate them and seeing your comment here means a lot to us, so thank you!

    Lets hope that all will be punished, All who implimented this stupidcap policy!
    ISP’s now, and GSM companies will get their share too !

  5. MCD says:

    But ITEM no1 in the contract states that they can change whatever they want blahblah, no? I believe these companies got that covered.

    Viva implanted the cap since April (at least) and only announced publicly it recently (June or late May).

    And I was one of the first who canceled his 4mb Gulfnet subscription after 3 good years with them and signed with Fastelco due to this cap, only to get hit with it again at Fastelco thanks to “MOC” or so they claim, or claimed. So yes, I am well aware of how this will affect me and the future generation in a world where everything is digital.

    I will continue to spread the word till this case is behind us.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

      that “they have the right to steal you at anytime they please” thing is not legal and wont be taken by court as our lawyer said

      we got everything covered too :]
      we’re just waiting for the right time and enough people who are willing to sue their isp’s

    as my participation: i have a done a short movie regarding to the current situation and its been posted on face book and you tube, we are working as a team and everyone is doing his/her part based on the skills he/she has :

    the movie explains about how the old generation who worked hard and fought for our future to build modern country then it shift to the future which they were hoping for with the new generation and their mentality of how they can reach space with knowledge and at the end it jumps to the present which is a desert while the ISP`s are building another desert instead of building ON a desert. i hope you find it meaningful for this campaign:

      I didn’t know we had pyramids!

      On a serious note: Great video and beautiful execution! Thank you very much! 😀

      • Conceptr980 says:

        the idea were to switch the text to some visual content because i believe alot of ppl these days are into movies, documentaries … etc and instead of having a book to read they prefer national geographic. hopefully the msg behind it is understood instead of animations and flying pics 🙂

        Dont thank me, all what i did is a video which anyone could do but to change a rule everyone should participate to make that change so at the end the community made this, all what i did is to translate their text to visuals for easy access.

      Your Message was very clear
      “The ISP`s are building another desert instead of building ON a desert”
      hope to see more work from your group and good luck
