6 Jun 2012

Bahrain’s largest telecoms group Batelco has signed an agreement with Qatar-based privately-owned submarine fibre-optic cable operator Gulf Bridge International (GBI) to connect to international capacity on GBI’s newly launched undersea cable system linking all the Gulf states. Batelco is also operating a landing station in Bahrain for the new cable, under a previous agreement reported by CommsUpdate in March 2010. The GBI international network was announced as ready for service in February 2012.
