Bahrain mulls new licensing plan

7 Feb 2006

Bahrain’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) is considering granting a third mobile network operating licence. TRA general director Andreas Avgousti said that no firm decision had been taken yet because the regulator was waiting for results of a study on the telecoms sector before launching a new auction. Currently only Batelco and MTC-Vodafone Bahrain are licensed to offer mobile services in the country.
