Batelco, Bahrain’s incumbent operator, has cut the price of its business broadband packages by 40%.
Batelco said that it is implementing the discounted rates automatically for its customers.
The new tariff reductions apply to all business broadband packages and are subject to one year contracts. Batelco will also offer its fixed IP service at a 50% discount, making it BD10.
Ahmed Al Janahi, general manager, media relations at Batelco, said that the company continuously reviews all its products and services.
“Batelco considers the needs of its customers as its number one priority and responds to their feedback by developing services that improve their communication facilities,” he said.
Batelco faces tough competition in its home market where it competes with Zain and STC’s Viva. Batelco’s net profit for the first six months of 2012 fell 11% compared to the same period last year as competition in its home market intensified.
