Zain Bahrain to begin next phase of network enhancements

2 Jan 2015

Plans have been unveiled by Zain Bahrain, the second largest mobile service provider in the country, to enhance its network coverage in order to ‘meet customer demand’. The expansion will form part of a USD100 million network transformation programme put in place by Swedish technology vendor Ericsson, which itself extends a 2G/3G/4G partnership between the two companies which was initiated in October 2013. Having launched its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in April 2013, the operator aims to keep expanding 4G services, with Zain Bahrain network director Hamad Al Romaihi saying: ‘The second phase of the network transformation programme will aim to enhance capacity … and roll out new sites across the Kingdom.’
