Batelco has always been an integral part of the community and takes pride in supporting national initiatives, namely the government’s efforts during this difficult time through enabling free unlimited usage for all fixed internet users.

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

“The efforts made by team Bahrain are admirable and it is inspiring to see how all communities are uniting. The measures taken by the leadership of the Kingdom of Bahrain have been impressive in taking control of the situation and looking after all inhabitants. Being national is embedded in our identity and we are committed to playing our part,” he added.

Batelco has recognised that with students studying from home and employees working remotely and encouraged to stay home, there will be more dependency on the internet to complete transactions online, conduct virtual meetings and e-learning sessions. Therefore, unlimited usage will be a great support for all.

All Batelco’s fixed broadband users will automatically benefit from the unlimited usage starting from 19 March until the end of May.
