Report: Tele2 installs 1st SIM card vending machine with biometry

MOSCOW, Jun 9 (PRIME) -- Mobile operator T2 RTK Holding, working as Tele2, has installed RussiaТs first fully automatic SIM card vending machine in the arrivals area of MoscowТs airport Vnukovo, business daily Vedomosti reported on Saturday quoting the operatorТs spokeswoman Olga Galushina.

To buy a SIM card in the machine, a buyer should scan their passport in a special slot of the terminal, get photographed and sign with a finger on a screen.

The system will not approve any invalid passport or any mismatch of the passportТs owner with the buyerТs identity, Galushina said.

Tele2 as well as other operators tried earlier to install SIM card vending machines, but without biometry, clientsТ identity was checked by a human being, she said.

The operator installed the SIM card vending machine on the eve of the FIFA World Cup the country will host on June 14ЦJuly 15.
