Mobily and Batelco in 4G LTE roaming agreement

30 Jul 2014

Saudi Arabian telco Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) has signed a 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) roaming agreement with Bahrain Telecommunications Company (Batelco), which will provide customers of both companies with advanced internet services outside of their domestic markets, Zawya reports.

TeleGeography notes that in March 2014 Mobily inked similar agreement with UAE-based Emirates Telecommunications Corporation (Etisalat), under which the Saudi Arabian network provider will connect its subscribers via Etisalat’s SmartHub IPX platform, which offers roaming services, voice, messaging and GRX data exchange between mobile network operators, fixed line operators, applications service providers and over-the-top (OTT) content players through a single connection.
