- PRESS RELEASE
Batelco Group Chief Executive Shaikh Mohamed bin Isa Al Khalifa has welcomed the key decision taken by the Government to limit the upcoming LTE Capacity auction to operators already operating within the Kingdom of Bahrain.
"The ongoing support offered by the Kingdom's leadership for the advancement of telecommunications in Bahrain has ensured that Bahrain has remained one of the leading business hubs of the region," he added.
"The awarding of the frequency spectrum licenses is crucial for commercially launching LTE in Bahrain beyond the trails which have taken place; we are therefore very pleased to hear this good news. Batelco is ready with the network technology in place and we hope to be successful in winning the required spectrum in order to deliver this much awaited advancement to our customers," concluded Shaikh Mohamed.
LTE, (Long Term Evolution) commonly referred to as the fourth generation of mobile technology enables the delivery of super fast data speeds. With the provision of 4G/LTE, Batelco networks will be capable of handling the much greater throughput of data in real time that's required to support such services as mobile HD video streaming and conferencing, web-based applications and services, and the rapid transfer of large files.
There is no doubt that LTE/4G will stimulate the path to the Networked Society in Bahrain by enabling global connectivity to the people, businesses and society.
