Batelco Bahrain delivers 4G/LTE roaming in KSA
Batelco, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s leading telecommunications services provider meets the needs of its customers travelling in Saudi Arabia by providing LTE Data Roaming services. Batelco was first to launch the beneficial service earlier this year.
Batelco’s customers can enjoy 4G high speed mobile internet while roaming in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, thanks to an agreement between Batelco and Mobily KSA. There is no need to subscribe for LTE roaming as subscribers with local LTE services can benefit from the high speeds automatically. Besides the direct connection with Mobily, Batelco customers can roam on other 4G networks using a new IPX technology based on mutual agreement with the other roaming operators.
Batelco General Manager Consumer Division Muna Alhashimi said that many of Batelco’s customers travel in Saudi Arabia during the holy month of Ramadan and during Eid holidays or to perform Umra, and accordingly the 4G LTE Data Roaming service will be a great benefit for them.
“We always promise to delight our customers and deliver an impressive Batelco experience by committing to invest in the latest technologies and services that ensure our customers benefit from world class products and services at home or while travelling,” she said.
“We currently have 1345 roaming agreements with international operators and we will continue to expand in line with our strategy to provide our customers with access to the best communication connections to reach all areas of the world and to benefit them whilst roaming overseas,” Mrs. Alhashimi added.
The full list of international operators that Batelco has agreements with can be found on batelco.com along with the roaming rates for all services.
