Mozambique’s Communications Regulatory Authority (INCM) has prohibited the use of radio-communications and telecommunications equipment that cause harmful interference to different telecom services.
The regulator said in a statement that it would confiscate all equipment not approved or that violates the legislation in force.
The list of prohibited equipment includes devices using DECT 6.0 (or other) technology operating in the 1900 to 2100 MHz frequency band; devices that enable fraudulent termination of calls (Sim box, for example); and equipment which represents health risks or which jeopardizes the security of terrestrial, maritime and aeronautical mobile services (e.g. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 mobile phones).
The sale and use of radio-communication and telecommunications equipment that is not homologated or certified by INCM is prohibited.
