The Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority (TCRA) says only 5.2 million mobile phone users (12 percent) have biometrically registered their SIM cards ahead of the 31 December deadline.
In May the government through Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority (TCRA) directed all Subscriber Identification Module (Sim) cards to biometrically register their lines by the end of the year.
TCRA and service providers have launched a publicity campaign on the campaign. Head of TCRA communication department Fredrick Ntobi said more than 39 million subscribers have not registered their lines and he insisted that TCRA wouldn’t push back the registration deadline.
“I call for subscribers to make sure that their lines are registered before the December 31 deadline; those who will fail to do so will be locked out of the service,” said Mr Ntobi.
