Skype and web navigation (Dubai)

Hi all
May I ask you if there is any update about VoIP restrinctions in UAE?
I'm about to move to Dubai and I want to make sure I'll be up to date on this.
Have I got it right: if I have a VoIP software (Skype or whatever) installed on my computer BEFORE I reach the UAE, I can continue using it also from there without any problem, the problem is, I can't download and install Skype once I am in Dubai?
Also, are there other major restrictions to web navigation? Do you suggest to get a VPN anyway?
Finally, can someone explain to me what about web and VoIP is actually forbidden by the UAE law and what is only due to an agreement between Etisalat and Du?
Many thanks indeed
Pietro
