Etisalat has announced that it has disconnected 1.3 million SIM cards as part of a campaign to force subscribers to re-register their details. The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) previously issued a registration directive that applies to customers of both Etisalat and rival cellco Du, as it seeks to prevent identity theft and other fraudulent activity.
