Government launches new mobile blocking service

1 Feb 2006

Georgian regulator the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications (MoPT), in partnership with cellcos Geocell and Magticom, has launched a new system that enables any stolen mobile phone to be blocked within three minutes. Under the new system, the actual handsets are blocked rather than just the SIM card.
