Batelco came out ahead of its competitors in the recent IPSOS survey carried out in Bahrain to rates customers’ satisfaction with their telecoms provider. Batelco scored 8.5 out of a possible 10, and was the only player in Bahrain to exceed the global telecom satisfaction norm which is 8/10. The telco was further recognised by Speedtest by OOKLA in November 2016  as Bahrain’s fastest mobile internet provider.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Al Hashemi said: "Batelco’s investment in new and upgraded networks ensures that our customers have access to fast speeds and reliable services. Additionally, we have invested in establishing the largest customer contact centre in Bahrain and in training hundreds of staff in handing customer issues efficiently."
