Azerbaijan's mobile operator to apply new method of Sim-card activation
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 14
By Huseyn Valiyev - Trend:
Azerbaijan's mobile operator Bakcell LLC will simplify the Sim-card activation method, the company told Trend on March 14.
The source said that the simplified activation method will allow a subscriber to activate the number without having to download the initial scratchcard.
"Presently, subscribers need to top up the balance via the scratchcard for the initial activation of the SIM card. This is an obligatory procedure. We are now working to ensure that the activation procedure is carried out not only by this way, but also through online payments. This will be possible already in May, "the source said.
The number of Bakcell subscribers is about 3.6 million. With more than 6,500 base stations Bakcell’s network covers more than 99 percent of the population and 93 percent of the land area of Azerbaijan (excluding occupied territories).
