Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTC) recently disclosed its decision to start a voluntary SIM registration campaign in Namibia. The campaign is intended to be run till 1st January 2023.
At this stage it’s a pro-active exercise we initiated to offer sufficient time and convenience for our subscribers to register early before the mandatory registration kicks off in January 2023 as envisioned by the regulator Communication Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN).
A registered card comes with security benefits – it helps prevent identity theft; forms the basis for systems that combat phone-based fraud; and it aids in combating cybercrime. Moreover, this is particularly essential given the high rate of this forms of crime committed. It also generally comes with convenience value of accessing electronic services. Especially now that more companies are upgrading their service offerings to digital platforms.Tim Ekandjo, Chief Human Capital, Corporate and Marketing Officer, MTC
