Batelco said through this scheme, it is enabling customers to benefit from the full potential of the Internet and enjoy all kinds of digital entertainment including games, movies, video calls and social media at speeds never seen before in the Kingdom.

Mikkel Vinter, CEO, Batelco, said: “We continuously monitor Internet usage and listen to our customers’ feedback and respond to their needs. We are fully aware of the importance of having a good Internet experience specially during these summer months for all users. Accordingly, we have decided to raise the bar of fibre speeds and provide an unprecedented experience by offering speed enhancements of up to five times the current speed to all existing and new fibre customers.”

“As Eid is around the corner and the authorities are recommending to avoid gatherings, the boost in speed will encourage everyone to stay home and will enhance the joyful feeling while enjoying Eid virtually.”

Vinter explained that Batelco customers will now be able to experience something that has never been experienced before in Bahrain.

“We are motivated by the fact that we want to be generous with our customers during these extraordinary times. As the leading digital solutions provider in Bahrain, we are committed to unleash the full potential of the Internet for our clients. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the management of Bahrain’s National Broadband Network (BNET), for their support in enabling this service, as BNET is responsible for providing broadband network services to all licensed telecom operators including Batelco.” he added.

The new services will come into effect on July 30, 2020 and will run until end of October.
