Switching off counterfeit phones not immediate: UCC

The UCC has deferred the switching off of counterfeit phones on the Ugandan market, saying that it is not automatic, and will follow an assessment of the impact after the six months sensitization campaign which started on Tuesday.

The sensitization campaign which will see the communications regulator working with all stakeholders in the communication sector to get rid of counterfeit/illegal cell phones on the Ugandan market, entering its second phase on Tuesday, and this involves consumer awareness as the key strategy.

Rebecca Mukite, the head of public and international relations at UCC while clarifying media reports that the commission is to switch off some 6 million cellphones, said that it is public knowledge that counterfeit cell phones expose their users to dangers and vulnerabilities, and this is what the commission is trying to eliminate, but the switch off is farfetched because they are starting with sensitization.
