Bahrain's TRA has released three reports on Mobile Quality of Service, Fixed Broadband performance and Internet Ecosystem Evolution.

An audit performed during November and December 2011 shows that the three mobile operators, Batelco, Viva and Zain have maintained or increased mobile service performances compared to the previous year. The key highlights of the audit showed the average data download speed reaches 3,065 Kbps compared to 1,070 Kbps just a year ago. This was because of network upgrades including HSPA technology.

The fixed broadband analysis of Q2, 2012 shows improvement in the TCP download speed which increased from 1.50 Mbps to 1.58 Mbps. Uploads averaged around 0.69 Mbps, up from 0.58 Mbps observed over the previous quarter.
Mohamed Bubashait, general director, TRA Bahrain, said: “The result of this study reaffirms Bahrain’s position as a leading telecommunications centre in the region. The competitiveness of the internet transit connecting Bahrain will directly support the efficiency of all internet service providers in providing competitive internet services to end users.”

Renesys, an Internet research firm, said that the ecosystem’s evolution for the first six months of the year, show ISPs are dynamically using an increasing number of options to reach the global Internet and optimise international transit arrangements.

Bahrain’s latest submarine cable technologies and terrestrial routes provide links to the largest internet transit providers. This reduces the risk of a single-cable incident affecting internet services.
