Pakistan- New SOP for issuance, activation of SIMs begins

The Pakistan Observer is reporting that the new Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) issued by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), requiring user verification before any SIM card is activated, has been officially implemented. Under the new SOP in order to obtain a new SIM card subscribers will first be required to provide a national identity card and complete a service agreement form. After this they will receive a non-activated SIM, and in order to activate it will be required to call a specified number from using the SIM and answer questions verifying the data they had provided. The new regulations have been introduced as the government and the regulator look to limit the use of mobile phones in anti-social activities.
