Bahrain- Pre-paid users given last chance to register

February 6, 2009 at 18:19 1 comment

Bahrain’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has extended a deadline for pre-paid mobile phone users to register their details to 31 March, because there still remain a significant number of unregistered subscribers. TRA general director Alan Horne said that only around half of an estimated 700,000 pre-paid users had registered by the original deadline on 31 December, and that ‘it could have been massive shock to the economy and to the telecom system of the country by taking such a big number of mobiles off the network.’ The registration scheme was introduced in the interests of public safety, security and to combat the use of mobile networks for illicit purposes.
