Equity bank allowed to roll out service on thin SIM

Category: Corporate Leave a comment A+ / A-

The Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) has allowed Equity Bank to roll out telecommunication services using a new SIM card technology for one year-in a trial period.

The move now tones down a vicious fight between the bank and market leader, Safaricom that had ensued over claims the technology exposed subscribers to cyber security and fraud.

CA director-general, Francis Wangusi, who appeared before the House committee on Energy, Information and communication said the new player has been granted the opportunity in line with accepted international standards-but a concrete decision will be made later.

“If we discover any vulnerability over the period, they will stop,” Wangusi told Journalists in Nairobi on Tuesday.
