Bangalore, India-based OnMobile, which describes itself as a leading supplier of ‘white-label’ data and value added services (VAS) for mobile, landline and media providers, has been censured by the government of Tanzania for operating in the country without a trading licence. The government has reportedly clipped its trading wings after it was revealed that OnMobile had struck up partnership deals with Vodacom and Airtel before even receiving the requisite licence. Tanzania’s deputy minister for communications, science and technology, January Yusuf Makamba, has now instructed OnMobile – through the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) – to wait until it receives a legal trading licence.
