Airtel Runs Out of Registration Forms

In what has been viewed as a major setback for Zambia’s SIM registration process, Airtel Zambia announced that it has run out of SIM registration forms and is unable to continue registering users’ cards as part of a government plan to regulate the sector further.

The Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA) has expressed its disappointment with Airtel Zambia “for turning away scores of customers who wanted to register their SIM cards because it had run out of registration forms.”

However, Airtel has said that the fault lies with the telecom regulator for not providing enough support for the process, in what analysts tell Bikyanews.com could be the beginning of tension between the operator, users and the regulator, although Airtel has yet to issue an official statement on the matter.
