AirtelTigo subscribers yet to register their SIM cards are from December 1 expected blocked from accessing all services, according to the telecommunication company.
The move, the company says is in line with Government’s directive to get citizens to link their SIM cards to their National Identification Cards by November 30.
Making the announcement, Leo Skarlatos, Chief Executive Officer at AirtelTigo said, “we encourage all subscribers who, for one reason or the other, have not been able to fully register to do so quickly and restore their services and phone numbers. We would like to thank all AirtelTigo subscribers who have fully registered their SIM cards and are enjoying our services.”
About 1.5 million AirtelTigo subscribers who have completed their first step of registration but are yet to complete their final step of biometric capture will consequently get blocked from 1st December.
