With just a month left to the 28th of February approaches, the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) has issued another reminder (a warning really) to mobile subscribers to register their mobile phone lines or risk disconnection when the deadline expires.
The directive to register all mobile phones was issued by POTRAZ last year with an initial registration deadline of 31 August 2010. Most mobile subscribers did not meet the deadline forcing POTRAZ to extend it to 28 February 2011.
There are 3 mobile operators in Zimbabwe; Econet, Telecel and NetOne. Recently, the mobile operators have also stepped up their line registration campaigns ostensibly to avoid having to deal with disconnections and reconnections.
