Today, April 17, all unregistered SIM cards would be removed from the telecom operators’ database.
This action follows a directive from the National Communications Authority (NCA).
In accordance with the deadline of March 31, 2023, the NCA directed the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications to make sure that all SIM cards that have not been re-registered with Ghana cards be removed.
As a result, all SIM cards registered after the individual limit of 10 should also be deactivated and deleted from all databases.
The Telecom operators are also expected to submit to the NCA the number of SIM cards disconnected.
The Chief Executive for the Chamber, Dr. Kenneth Ashigbey tells Citi News his outfit will cooperate with NCA in this exercise.
“The regulator has given timelines, from the perspective of the regulator, these things have been happening previously. We will cooperate with the regulator,” Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications said.
