Ethio Telecom begins registering mobile SIMs

Thursday 21 September 2017 | 11:04 CET | News
Ethio Telecom will begin registering new mobile phone lines or SIMs on its system from 21 September in a bid to prevent smuggled phones on the local market and stop telecom fraud through breaching its satellite network, Addis Fortune reported. The state monopoly telecom provider will put 2.7 million mobile phones out of operation within a year.
