Comments

Networks in Saudi Arabia have implemented very complex spam filters that in most cases block even legitimate application to person traffic. Therefore, cheap signalling/roaming links do not deliver well especially for high value content such as password delivery or alerts, let alone marketing bulk traffic. Additionally, all the routes in Saudi are unstable due local issues so relying on one route is not possible.
