Regulator warns operators to meet number registration deadline

4 Jun 2015

Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has urged the country’s mobile network operators and resellers to speed up their pre-paid user registration process, The Nation reports. The NBTC previously set 31 July 2015 as a deadline for registering all pre-paid SIM cards, with unregistered users to be blocked from making calls beyond this date, but the report indicates that less than 40% of pre-paid SIMs have so far been registered.
