Zain Bahrain will launch its fibre-optic broadband service for homes, business and enterprises from tomorrow.

In a statement, the telecoms operator said its fibre-optic services will contribute to the kingdom’s economic progress and social development, offering revolutionary services and solutions to meet customers’ needs.

Fibre-optic broadband connectivity is a key part of the Fourth National Telecommunication Plan, added the statement.

In line with the plan, a newly created company – Bahrain’s National Broadband Network (BNET) – is providing broadband network services to all licensed operators.

Zain Bahrain chairman Shaikh Ahmed bin Ali Al Khalifa said, “With the new fibre-optic service, Zain Bahrain will be able to expand its services to the business market rapidly. In order to meet our customers’ demand for high capacity and bandwidth for their data requirements, we need a total offering based on a future proof technology. Zain Bahrain has now accomplished this through a superior network, a flexible fixed-telecom solutions and now also fibre-optic Internet services.”

“This milestone achievement would have not been accomplished, if it wasn’t for Bahrain government leadership and vision towards liberating the telecom sector to be a key enabler for boosting the digital transformation in the kingdom and offering all customers the opportunity to experience fiber-optic services. Bahrain government has always been a motivator to reinforce our position since 2003,” he added.
