2Connect wins reprieve

13 Apr 2011

Bahraini alternative telco 2Connect will have all its operating licences restored by the country’s telecoms regulator, which had previously announced it was revoking them, Gulf Daily News (GDN) reports. The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has confirmed the reversal of an order to cancel the operator’s concessions issued on 22 March. While no reason had been given for the action, sources said it was prompted by ‘unspecified security threats.’
