17 Aug 2018

Due to growing demand for mobile broadband services in the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has issued a consultation for new spectrum to be awarded in the 800MHz and 2600MHz frequency bands. The spectrum that will be made available at auction will be 60MHz in the 800MHz band, available as 2×30MHz of paired spectrum, and 140MHz in the 2600MHz band, which can be offered as paired or unpaired spectrum.

The TRA stated that submission of responses to the initial consultation must be made by 13 September and that applications for spectrum licences would run from 11 November to 15 November 2018.
