AKEP instructs SIM registration for bulk SIMs

27 Feb 2014

Albanian telecoms regulator Electronic and Postal Communications Authority (AKEP) has instructed the nation’s cellcos to re-register SIMs for all user accounts with more than 20 registered SIMs, including individuals, corporations and public institutions. The instruction was issued in collaboration with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and looks to curb the potential use of mobile phones for remotely controlling explosions. Users will have until 6 March to re-register their SIMs or face disconnection.
