LTE service is available as a free upgrade until the end of February
Viva Bahrain has launched an LTE network. The company, which is a unit of Saudi Arabia's STC Group, said that the network has download speeds of up to 100Mbps and "the widest coverage" in Bahrain.
Ulaiyan Al Wetaid, CEO, Viva Bahrain, said "The launch of 4G LTE network is one of our biggest milestone achievements, aimed at providing our customers with the best broadband experience possible."
He added that the company has taken its time to launch LTE to ensure that the quality of its network exceeded the performance already offered by its 3G+ network.
Viva customers can take advantage of LTE services for free from 6 January until the end of February 2014, after which the service is available as an add-on for BD 5.
