Check Services You’ll Lose After August If You Don’t Register Your SIM Despite Extension



Despite the latest extension of the SIM card re-registration by the Minister of Communication and Digitalisation, one stands to lose some services if they don’t register their cards by the end of August.

According to Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the new window of opportunity – which extends the deadline to Friday, September 30 – will be reviewed at the end of August and those who have still not registered will face consequences.

“The program will be extended to 30th September to end on the anniversary of its commencement,” Mrs Owusu-Ekuful, who is also the Ablekuma West Member of Parliament, said on Sunday, July 31.

“That will give us one full year of SIM registration.”

Nonetheless, she indicated that the deadline “will be reviewed at the end of this month and any SIM that has not been fully registered by the end of August will be barred from receiving certain services including voice and data services”.

“It will also be more expensive to use unregistered SIMs.”

She said the full range of punitive measures will be announced in September.

“Kindly do not blame your service provider when you suffer that fate due to your own inaction. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.”
