Zain Bahrain, the kingdom's leading telecommunications services operator, has become the first network operator to provide enhanced mobile and broadband network connectivity in the newly developed areas of East Hidd, Hidd block 111, and Lawzi.
These areas are primarily where new housing projects are being developed by the Ministry of Housing and private developers; in line with the government’s direction in facilitating the telecom services in those areas.
Zain Bahrain took a progressive approach and worked tirelessly through last year to roll out 4G and 5G broadband networks to these specific areas where residents will enjoy enhanced data speed and greater network connectivity opportunities to meet the increasing customer demand.
The network enhancement highlights Zain Bahrain’s capability and continuous commitment to empowering Zain Bahrain customers with solutions and services that enhance people's digital lives.
With the enhanced network, residents in the newly developed areas will enjoy faster data speeds and greater opportunities for connectivity. Zain Bahrain has also worked to provide the residents with 5G broadband technologies thereby improving their streaming, gaming and applications that require high bandwidth and better latency.
With Zain Bahrain’s 5G broadband, the residents in these areas will have a router that can supply both wired and wireless broadband to various devices at home.
Commenting on the occasion, Ali Al Yaham, the director for technology at Zain Bahrain, said: "During these unprecedented Covid-19 times we understand our responsibility as a telecommunications operator and a digital enabler is much bigger than normal times."
"We sought to ensure that connectivity for the residents remotely working or attending online classes or providing education do not get hampered during these tough times," he stated.
"We are glad the residents can enjoy seamless access to our reliable and state-of-the-art technologies," he added.
According to him, Zain Bahrain is committed to enhancing and bringing in more innovative offerings to other such newly developed areas in the future in order to provide an unprecedented mobile experience on both 5G and 4G devices.
"The company also focuses on growing the 5G network in 2021 and will continue its dedication to transforming industries and enhancing people’s digital lives, a key part of this is overall 4G and 5G network expansion," he added.
