13 Sep 2010

The Postal and Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) has extended the deadline for all mobile phone users to register their details to 28 February 2011, after the previous deadline expired last month. AllAfrica quotes an announcement from POTRAZ board chairman Charles Sibanda, who said that the extension is aimed at giving all people, especially those in rural areas, ample time to register their lines. He elaborated: ‘After 28 February, all unregistered subscribers will be disconnected without further notice. Call and SMS restriction measures will be instituted from 1 January 2011 on all unregistered subscribers including call banning during peak periods.’
