Bahrain approves new telecoms plan

There are a number of developments underway in Bahrain which will improve both services and infrastructure, notes BuddeComm. "Bahrain already has a progressive telecoms market which is liberalised to a large extent and one of the most open in the region, underpinned by a relatively well-developed regulatory structure. The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) is the primary driver behind many of the key planned improvements to the current telecoms market in Bahrain. The third national telecoms plan expired at the end of 2015 and the fourth plan was given approval this May. It will reportedly focus on further developing fibre-optic infrastructure and implementing affordable prices for high-speed access. It also includes consideration of 5G development and readiness. This blueprint for the future will see Bahrain have full fibre optic coverage in three years, according to the TRA's director-general." Read More The Bahrain News Agency announcement
