Batelco, the digital solutions provider in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has partnered with du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), to offer 5G international roaming services in the UAE, enabling Batelco to be the first operator in Bahrain to offer the service.
Batelco’s subscribers can now have access to 5G international roaming service in the UAE when connected to du’s network, offering them with a better roaming experience.
The CEO of Batelco, Mikkel Vinter, commented, “We are pleased to enter into the partnership with du to provide 5G international roaming services for Batelco’s customers visiting United Arab Emirates. The partnership is testament to Batelco’s continuous efforts to provide its customers with solutions that enrich their experience. This agreement becomes one of our 1,560 roaming agreements with international telecommunication companies and we are proud to be the first operator in the Kingdom to provide this service using a 5G network outside of Bahrain.”
Vinter also added, “Furthermore, we strive to be the leaders in bringing the latest telecom and digital solutions to the Kingdom. Accordingly, we were the first to launch 5G commercially in Bahrain, and today, we are proud to be the first to launch 5G international roaming too. Our keenness to be the first in launching the latest technologies is motivated by our strong belief in supporting the Kingdom’s digital economic vision.”
