August 31st, 2013 marked the end of the mandatory regulatory customer SIM registration exercise; the 18 month exercise was initiated in March 2012.

By the deadline of 31st August, MTN Uganda had successfully registered 96% of its close to 8.2 million active customer base leaving a total of just 327,548 active customers yet to be registered. These have been affected by the full deactivation process effective 1st September 2013 as communicated by the Uganda Communication Commission (UCC).

The initial period was focused on registering as many of its customers as possible as the company carried out a validation of the information laterally. “We have been able to achieve this however there is some back log in terms of verification. Customers whose details are yet to be verified will not be disconnected”, said Anthony Katamba, MTN Uganda’s General Manager Corporate Services.

All MTN Uganda customers that have completed the registration process are considered ‘registered’. The MTN customers whose SIM cards have been deactivated can still visit one of its Customer Service outlets (Service Centers) across the country along with the Registration Agents that will be open even after the deadline. They will be able to register and reconnect them in line with guidelines issued by UCC.

Katamba explained that the disconnection will affect SIM card based services including incoming and outgoing voice, SMS, MMS and internet data services. The disconnection however does not mean these subscribers have lost their SIMs or their airtime balances. Upon registration, the SIM cards will be reconnected. Disconnected subscribers will still be able to call the MTN helplines as well as the subscriber registration short code of 197 to get assistance on how to register and get reconnected.

“There will be no need for customers to buy new SIM cards but the existing MTN SIM cards will be reactivated after registration. We will make sure that all our customers are given equal opportunity to register and remain connected on MTN network”, he added.

 

MTN Uganda is presently carrying out a verification of all the subscriber information received and as you will appreciate verification of documents of over eight million subscribers is not an easy feat and as such it takes a lot of time. The verification exercise will continue even after 31st August 2013.

“We would like to thank our regulator, the Uganda Communications Commission, the Ministry of ICT and all the other telecommunications operators who have all worked hard to make this exercise a success. We also thank our customers most importantly for responding to the call to get registered,” Katamba concluded.

Additional Information:

  29. As with the many contraceptives coming out in the marketplace there is
    also a natural method of providing birth control. When you track your menstrual cycle it is possible to determine when it is appropriate to be having sexual relations with your partner and when it’s not safe to avoid getting
    pregnant. Any woman who has their monthly period must be aware of days when she is ovulating.

    This will form the basis of her safe test. The safe period determines the beginning
    and the ending of a woman’s fertility period which can help you determine when it is the most likely to become pregnant.In order
    to have an understanding of the safe testing for your period, you should be aware of some facts regarding your menstrual
    cycle as well as the method that is natural for family planning.The menstrual cycle for
    each woman is 14 days before her next period. If a woman is having her menstrual period over an interval of 28 days on a regular basis.
    Beginning with the first day of the period being day one, she would then ovulate
    on day fourteen. On the other hand in the event that the cycle lasts for 32 consecutive days, the ovulation begins at the age of 18.
    When a woman is ovulating, male sperm have 24-hours in which to
    fertilize the egg.Now knowing more about the time of ovulation it’s simpler to know
    when it is safe to engage in intercourse without any other means of contraception. Some women make use
    of the calendar to monitor the days on which they
    are near to ovulating. Other women use the method of temperature as well as the mucus test.

  30. A person essentially assist to make critically articles
    I might state. This is the very first time I frequented your web page and up to now?
    I surprised with the research you made to make
    this particular put up extraordinary. Wonderful process!

  31. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!

  32. Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website
    before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking
    back often!
