SIM card re-registration: Telcos halt blocking of unregistered numbers

Social Share

The National Communications Authority (NCA) has withdrawn its earlier directive to telecommunication companies to bar calls from customers who have not registered their SIM cards following a public backlash over the issue.

Although the NCA and the Telecommunication Chamber are tight-lipped on the issue, information reveals that no calls have been barred contrary to the earlier directive.

SIM card owners in Ghana who failed to re-register their cards started facing punitive actions on Monday, September 5, 2022, ahead of the September 30 deadline.

Persons who fail to comply with the directive would have their SIM cards blocked after September 30.

The National Communications Authority (NCA) was sued, with a group asking the Supreme Court to declare the deadline for registration and the associated punitive measures for non-registration null and void.

It argued that the punitive measures are unconstitutional.
