A wide-reaching probe into the sector led to fines totalling $283 million, and found other companies including Camtel and Viettel were also in violation of regulations. It is not clear how much has been paid by each of the operators.

  1. MTN is a pathologically corrupt, lawless, devious and greedy capitalist company everywhere they operate.

    They like to circumvent rules of engagement and when caught, they won’t want to pay fines.

    I don’t care a damn about their current panic re-registration of subscribers.

    Thank goodness, there are alternative networks.
