It urged subscribers who had reached the ceiling of 10 individual SIMs including their Surfline SIMs will be able to link additional SIMS to their Ghana Cards now

The National Communications Authority (NCA) has delinked all Surfline SIMS from the Central Database. 

“The National Communications Authority (NCA) wishes to announce to the public that, the Authority has delinked all Surfline SIMs from the Central SIM Database,” the NCA announced on its website.

It urged subscribers who had reached the ceiling of 10 individual SIMs including their Surfline SIMs will be able to link additional SIMS to their Ghana Cards now.

The NCA reaffirmed its unrelenting “commitment to protect the interest of Surfline customers and all users of telecommunications services in Ghana.”

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, 31 May 2023, all users of unregistered SIM cards were disabled from receiving or making phone calls.

This came on the back of a directive from the NCA.

Such SIM card users, therefore, have their numbers deactivated and removed according to the directive from the NCA.

The Director General of the NCA, Joseph Anokye, at a press conference held on Wednesday, 26 April 2023, had revealed that 11 million unregistered SIM cards will be deactivated.

Mr Anokye had said: “…If you are part of this 11 million… you are not exempted. 

“If you are not a foreign diplomat, you are not a refugee, you will be delinked if you do not register.”

Despite an earlier decision to delete all unregistered SIM cards by Monday, 17 April 2023, it was reversed after consultations.
