VIVA Bahrain has launched a nationwide 4G+ LTE network coverage.

4G+ (or LTE Advanced) is a technical upgrade to the existing LTE platform. The operator has said that the speed (225 Mbps) will be almost twice as fast as the normal 4G (150 Mbps), marking this as a significant step towards creating a future Giga network in the Kingdom.

VIVA Bahrain CEO, Eng. Ulaiyan Al Wetaid said: “With our continual investments in innovation and collaboration of technological services in Bahrain, we are now taking an enormous step towards the 5G era. As the frontrunner in the Kingdom’s telecom sector, adoption to advanced LTE network is an integral part of our mobile network modernisation, which enables us to meet the demands of the local population with access to mega speeds and high-quality customer experience. This sets a strong foundation for the deployment of our 5G services in the near future while also uplifting Bahrain’s capabilities to be an ICT powerhouse.”

The 4G+ LTE advanced service has been launched for all VIVA subscribers across the Kingdom.
