He said SIM Card registration is a Ugandan law which has been enforced to benefit both the government and its citizens.
This was at the official Warid and Airtel merging ceremony held at Wampewo House in Kampala on Tuesday.
Nyombi further thanked the management of Airtel for gaining momentum to take over Warid Telecom.
“This merging has helped more than 7.2 million mobile subscribers in communicating with each other without paying for the interconnection charges since the companies are now one,” said Nyombi.
He further noted that the reduction of call charges has been as a result of economies of scale where bigger companies enjoy a reduction in production costs.
Bharti Airtel bought Warid in April in order to bring together the strengths of Warid and Airtel in Uganda and offer benefits to customers in the form of a superior and wider network, affordable voice and data services, and superior customer care.
