Batelco to offer cheaper broadband

31 Jan 2006

Bahrain’s Batelco has announced it is planning to lower the prices of its high speed internet access services in response to customer satisfaction research which found that almost 50% of its customers believe that its tariffs are too high and expect faster access for their money. Batelco wants to charge lower rates for an entry-level broadband service offering speeds of 256kbps/64kbps, with a 2GB download threshold. The telco added that the offer requires regulatory approval from the TRA before it is rolled out to subscribers.
