Batelco network upgrades continue

5 May 2015

The Bahrain Telecommunications Company (Batelco) is currently upgrading 3G and 4G services across the country, in addition to continuing expansion of its ‘superfast broadband’ fibre network. According to Batelco CEO Muna Al Hashemi, the firm’s transformation plan ‘will allow us to offer customers a greater experience and meet their ever-increasing demands’. While the operator leads Bahrain’s mobile sector in terms of subscriber share (38.0% at end-December 2014, according to TeleGeography), it is second to Mena Telecom in the broadband sector with Batelco having a 29.7% share of subscriptions at the same date, against Mena’s 46.6%.
