Bahrain’s telecom sector is behind compared to region: Batelco
06 Oct 2011
(MENAFN) Batelco’s general manager for mobile networks, Abdulhamid Chehab, said that the country is behind in terms of telecom services in the region, as the regulator had not yet allocated the spectrum for next-generation high speed networks, reported Arabian Business.
Chehab said that even though the matter was accelerated with high importance to the attention of the regulator, a firm response was not given.
The notes of Chehab come as operators in the region including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and United Arab Emirates launched their 4G networks.
