The Kingdom of Bahrain is an island country; a small archipelago situated between the Qatar Peninsula and the north eastern coast of Saudi Arabia. Though small, it has a fast-growing and free economy which is led by the petroleum production and processing sector and also the banking and financial services sector. Aluminium production and construction materials also feature high on its list of exported products. Bahrain is noted as a tourist destination and attracts millions of visitors with its range of archaeological sites, UNESCO World Heritage Site at Qalat Al Bahrain and also its biodiversity which includes hundreds of species of birds.
The telecom sector in Bahrain has been liberalised and the introduction of competition saw prices fall. Today, there is very high mobile penetration, and there is a high concentration on mobile data which has been a huge growth story in the country. Access to the Internet over mobile phones is therefore incredibly popular and there are around 2.8 million mobile subscriptions though the population of Bahrain stands at approximately 1,234,000.
The government of Bahrain has placed access to telecommunications firmly at the top of its list of priorities. The country has stipulated, in its Fourth National Broadband Plan that 95% of all households and businesses will be have access to affordable, reliable and secure ultra-fast broadband services by 2020. The government also states that the 5% that is not covered, should have access to alternative broadband Internet services.
Though Bahrain is a well-connected country and has a forward-thinking government that is making internet access a priority, there are still areas that are not yet covered, leaving some homes and businesses without access to broadband Internet services. BusinessCom Networks provides ideal solutions via satellite that can be used to bridge any divide in connectivity.
