NBTC mulling SIM re-registration process

22 Mar 2018

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) is reportedly planning to issue a directive to all mobile operators ordering them to re-register their entire customer bases, The Bangkok Post writes. The new registration process will require operators to record the real owner of a SIM under a ‘registered by’ formula or record the user under the ‘holder by’ formula. If the draft proposal is enacted, all cellcos will have 180 days to complete the process.
