BIPT imposes a fine on Lycamobile

Brussels, 2 June 2018 - This year, BIPT has found several infringements committed by Lycamobile for non-observance of rules regarding prior identification of end-users of prepaid cards. Therefore, a 225,183 euro fine is imposed on Lycamobile. BIPT forces Lycamobile to introduce immediately a system to systematically verify requests from sales points for activation of prepaid cards and to check within a month’s time whether for cards activated after 25 January 2018 the identification document submitted was a valid one.
