Batelco to bid for new licence

13 Nov 2006

Batelco will bid for one of two National Fixed Wireless Service (NFWS) licences currently on offer by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA). Batelco Internet Services head Eyad Almaskati said: ‘We believe that the proposed NFWS licence will be complementary to our existing fixed and wireless services in Bahrain’. The NFWS licences will use frequencies in the 3.5GHz range and are due to be issued by the TRA in January.
