Bahrain’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority has launched a final consultation on the reference offer of the split Batelco entity. The consultation ends on 25 April 2019. The new wholesale-only entity (NBNetco BSC) will be formed by the separation of Batelco into two distinct entities. NBNetco will operate and deploy the single national broadband infrastructure in the Kingdom. This is how all telecom services including 5G will be provided. Service providers must therefore be granted access to the infrastructure on fair and reasonable terms.
