Batelco’s NGN is on target

14 Apr 2008

Batelco reports that it has entered the final phase of a USD57 million project to roll out a next generation network (NGN) to expand triple-play broadband internet, telephony and IPTV coverage to the entire population of Bahrain. The incumbent telco’s migration to the NGN has already been completed in the Northern and Southern Governorate and a further two areas, Mahooz and Gudabiya, are being switched over to the new technology this month, giving customers access to voice, data and video services over a single fixed line. The nationwide project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the third quarter of this year.
