March 13, 2014 12:35 pm

Batelco, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s leading telecommunications services provider, has added another ‘first’ to its long list of fine achievements, with the launch of LTE Data Roaming for its customers travelling in Saudi Arabia.

Batelco’s customers will now be able to enjoy 4G high speed mobile internet while roaming in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, thanks to the new agreement between Batelco and Mobily KSA. There is no need to subscribe for LTE roaming as subscribers with local LTE service can benefit from the high speeds right away. Beside the direct connection with Mobily, Batelco customers will be able to roam on other 4G networks using a new IPX technology based on mutual agreement with the other roaming operators.

Batelco General Manager Muna Alhashimi said that Batelco can be very proud of this milestone, being the first telco in Bahrain to deliver 4G LTE Data Roaming for its customers.

“We always promise to delight our customers and deliver an impressive Batelco experience by committing to invest in the latest technologies that ensure our customers benefit from world class products and services,” she said.

“We currently have 1294 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 along with the roaming rates for all services.
