Bahrain deregulates Batelco mobile tariffs

22 February 2010

Batelco will no longer need approval from Bahrain's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority to launch or amend retail mobile and certain international tariffs, under a new framework issued by TRA. Batelco will be required to notify the TRA of a proposed change in advance and will be free to introduce new tariffs, such as bundles of services, provided it complies with the tariff controls defined. The new framework will enter into effect once the regulation is published in the official gazette and Batelco's licences are modified, the company said in a statement.
