Batelco, Bahrain’s leading digital solutions provider, has announced today that fiber speeds will be boosted by up to 5 times for all fiber internet customers with no additional charges till the end of October.
This initiative is in line with Batelco’s on-going support for the efforts against the spread of the Coronavirus. With summer and school holidays upon us, Batelco has decided to boost its’ fiber internet speeds for all exciting and new fiber customers to enjoy additional speeds starting from 2 times up to 5 times of their current speed, depending on their selected package. This enables customers to benefit from the full potential of the internet and enjoy all kinds of digital entertainments including games, movies, video calls and social media at speeds never seen before in the Kingdom.

We are fully aware of the importance of having a good internet experience specially during these summer months for all internet users. Accordingly, we have decided to raise the bar of fiber speeds and provide an unprecedented experience by offering speed boosts of up to 5 times the current speed to all existing and new fiber 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 the Eid spirits virtually,” he added.
“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 customers. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the management of “BNET”, Bahrain’s National Broadband Network, 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.
Customers will be notified by SMS and the additional speeds will be implemented automatically starting from the 30th of July until the end of October.
