Bahrain to cut mobile roaming charges

20 June 2010

Bahrain's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority plans to implenent significant cuts in roaming charges from September 1. The TRA said today it is working on rolling out the cuts following an agreement by the GCC Telecommunications Ministers Committee to cap tariffs at a meeting in Kuwait earlier this month. Currently, Bahraini customers pay up to 550 fils per minute for GCC roaming charges, the TRA said. The approved recommendation will set the price ceiling at around 340 fils in the first year and down to 250 fils in the second year. The recommended rates will also be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure that consumers benefit from the updated prices, it said.
