Paraguay lower house approves new mobile bill

Friday 5 May 2017 | 13:45 CET | News
Paraguay's chamber of deputies has approved an amended bill that seeks to further regulate the activation of mobile SIM cards in the country, reports local daily ABC Color. Under the terms of the new legislation anyone seeking to acquire a SIM needs to provide their identity card or passport details, complete a form prepared by the country's communications regulator Conatel and provide a fingerprint. All mobile users will be required to comply with the new rules within a maximum of 12 months, with the country's operators required to record all sales and activations for a minimum of five years
