Regulator suspends sale of Mobily pre-paid SIM cards

Saudi Arabia's second-largest telecoms operator Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) has announced it has been suspended from selling pre-paid SIM cards by the industry regulator, Reuters has reported. The suspension by the Communication and Information Technology Commission (CITC) is to remain halted until the company "fully meets the prepaid service provisioning requirements," the firm said. According to the requirements, all pre-paid SIM users must enter a personal identification number when recharging their accounts and that this number must be the same as the one registered with their mobile operator when the SIM card was bought. Mobily said the financial impact of the CITC's decision would be "insignificant," claiming data, corporate and post-paid revenues would meet its main growth drivers.
