UCC hails 98% success rate for SIM registration scheme

21 Sep 2017

The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has reported a 98% success rate for its recently completed SIM re-registration scheme. There had previously been fears that millions of users could face being wrongly disconnected due to delays in issuing national identity cards; these cards are necessary for a subscriber to validate their mobile account. A report from local radio station KFM cites the regulator’s Corporate Affairs Director Fred Otunnu as saying that any customers whose lines have been disconnected can still have their service reactivated by following the correct SIM registration process.
