Surf for less

Following months of struggle with Bahrain’s regulator, the country’s telco, Batelco, has officially announced its BD10 per month broadband internet service.

From the tenth of this month, consumers in the Kingdom will be able to reap the benefits of this cut-price surfing set-up, which Batelco claims is “the most affordable internet offer for the Kingdom of Bahrain and across the GCC”.

With download speeds of 256Kbit/s (kilobits per second), and a data threshold of two gigabytes per month, Batelco reckons its new internet plan will easily satisfy the needs of most light to moderate users; in other words those who don’t want to download large video and music files but prefer high-speed web browsing and e-mailing.
