TRA issues competition warning to Batelco

23 May 2007

Bahrain’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has this week warned former monopoly operator Batelco that it must be willing to accept competition under the country’s liberalised telecoms market, Gulf Daily News reports. The regulator was responding to a threat from Batelco on Sunday that it would halt capital investment in the country unless it received more favourable treatment under the TRA’s pricing policy, the report said.
