TIM questions security of Iliad's SIM card machines - report

Wednesday 13 June 2018 | 09:54 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) has requested clarification from Italy's interior ministry regarding the security of the automatic SIM card distribution machines introduced by newly-launched operator Iliad, reports Il Sole 24 Ore, citing unnamed sources. The distribution machines – dubbed 'Simbox' – could breach the Pisanu Law of 2005, which requires the identification of a SIM card holder by means of a valid identity document, said the report, adding that fake IDs may have been used to acquire SIMs via the machines.
