MPT sim card holders must register at sales centres under new rules

THE Myanmar Post and Telecommunication (MPT) company has issued an announcement to operators that phone sim cards have to be registered at sales centres.

Phone sim cards which have not been registered will be suspended starting from March 2017.

Mobile users have been instructed to register their sim before the cutoff date to avoid being denied phone service. Although this method of purchasing is easy for customers, we find it difficult to solve problems, said a responsible person from Telenor.

Apparently, the new rules have been instated to halt mobile users from exchanging sim cards with one another, depriving mobile operators of customer’s accurate personal information. To register a sim card, a national registration card (NRC) or other documentation needs to be presented at a sales centre.
