3 Feb 2015

State-backed operator Bahrain Telecommunications Company (Batelco) has launched a range of bolt-on voice plans for its fixed line subscribers, including what it claims is a Bahraini first: unlimited voice minutes to all local networks. Starting at BHD1 (USD2.6) per month for a 200 minute bolt-on package, the prices rise to BHD2, BHD3 and BHD5 for 500 minutes, 1000 minutes and unlimited calls, respectively, with all local networks included in the offer. Batelco CEO Muna Al Hashemi commented: ‘The new voice minutes solution delivers excellent value for Batelco’s customers and allows them peace of mind with no big bills to worry about.’

A number of additional fixed line packages are also available from Batelco, such as an entry-level plan featuring line rental, free browsing and 200 minutes of calls to local fixed line networks; that plan is priced at BHD3.5 per month.
