Bahrain’s Batelco to give customers unlimited internet usage

Batelco is set to give all fixed internet users unlimited usage until the end of May.

The telecommunications company made the decision to help students who rely on the internet to study while schools are closed, and employees working from home.

All of Batelco’s fixed broadband users will have unlimited usage from today (March 19) until the end of May.

Batelco CEO Mikkel Vinter said, “We are proud to be part of Team Bahrain and in these extraordinary times, Batelco is committed to stand with the government and the community.

“We remain focussed on our vision to empower people, enable businesses and enrich society. Therefore, we have enabled unlimited usage for all our fixed Internet users, so they can continue their daily lives with minimum inconvenience and interruptions.”

Batelco already announced earlier this week that it would be giving broadband customers free browsing on educational websites.
