He added: “A key component of our strategy is to invest in the ongoing development of our mobile network. To be in line with the government’s plans, we collaborate with the authorities to ensure that services are delivered to new areas to meet the specific demands of each location. As the first telecom provider to deliver nationwide 5G coverage we remain focussed on delivering the best network in Bahrain and will continue to work around the clock to enhance services that support the efforts of developers and meet customer requirements.”
