Even though its Jego app has only been available since June 3, China Mobile has reportedly suspended account registrations for the Skype and Viber competitor due to alarm over boundaries for VoIP services in the country, allegedly because Jego was using tech from one of China Mobile’s subsidiaries based in Hong Kong that was apparently not meant to be used within China.
That doesn’t mean the service is down and out for good, however. According to The Next Web, the service could still be salvaged by China Mobile since it’s still online; only new registrations have been suspended. An official post on the website that reads “We will be pleased to notify customers of Jego official launch” also lends some credibility to the assumption that the service is only down temporarily.
No word yet on if and when Jego’s suspensions on new registrations will be lifted.
