Next week, the future of unregistered SIM card holders will be known

It has been decided to postpone the planned operation to disable all unregistered SIM cards beginning on Saturday, October 1, 2022.

In order to enable the Ministry of Communication and Digitalization to review the anticipated exercise's road map,

According to a dependable source familiar with the SIM registration procedure, a new date and the details will be announced early next week, but added that the punitive measures that were put in place earlier in September will be applied once more.

The NCA met with the telcos on Friday morning to finalize the details, and all indicated their willingness to proceed with the exercise to block the unregistered SIMs as of the deadline's expiration on Friday, September 30, 2022.

People who have completed stage one of their registration—linking their Ghana Cards to their SIM cards via *404#—have till the end of the year [2022] to finish stage two.

Once more, those who have not registered their SIMs at all will be prohibited from doing things like making or receiving calls, using data services, and more.

However, it was said that such subscribers would be able to dial *404# to begin their registration and would also be able to get their unique numbers by SMS.

As a result of subscribers starting registration late, Telesol, Busy, and Surfline, who are included in the category of Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) providers, will be allowed further time to finish registering their clients, according to the statement.

It reaffirmed that the Ministry of Communications and Digitalization, the policy maker, had received the roadmap post-deadline from the industry regulator for a final approval to implement.

The sector minister is now in Bucharest, Romania, attending the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) plenipotentiary conference where Ghana is vying to keep its position on the ITU Council, according to news sources.
