Informed Communication Plans

Empowering Voices, Uniting Bahrain: Bridging Communities Through Informed Dialogue.

Are you ready to tap into the Kingdom of Bahrain's digital future, a hub of technological connectivity and innovation? Bahrain is not just a regional leader but a global connector, offering internet bandwidth that links to regional nodes in MENA, Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Australia. This connectivity is supported by strong market conditions, including high mobile penetration, the rollout of commercial 5G, and a business-friendly regulatory environment. These factors position Bahrain as an ideal testing ground for communication technology companies aiming to leverage the digital transformation sweeping the region.

Bahrain’s ICT sector’s liberal business policies and advanced infrastructure make it stand apart in the Middle East, both as a thriving domestic marketplace and as a base for accessing the growing regional market. Having identified ICT as a key strategic sector for Bahrain, the government’s policies have made Bahrain a regional leader in the development of telecommunications and the Internet.

At the heart of this technological leap is the Telecommunication Law of Bahrain (PDF, 663 KB, 60 pages), which has established BNET, an independent entity dedicated to enabling a Smart and Connected Kingdom. BNET's mission is to provide accessible and reliable fiber connectivity at fair and reasonable prices, thereby fostering a digitally inclusive society.

The Kingdom's Telecommunication Plan outlines a strategic vision for the next three years, ensuring that the telecommunications sector aligns with global trends and local demands, particularly those of the digital economy and 4th industrial revolution technologies. Bahrain's proactive approach, including the adoption of a four-year National Frequency Plan (PDF, 2.2MB, 165 pages), showcases its commitment to managing the frequency spectrum efficiently and catering to the burgeoning needs of the ICT sector.

National Frequency Plan

For businesses and individuals alike, compliance with Bahrain's robust telecommunications framework is key. Whether it's obtaining the necessary frequency license or ensuring that imported telecom equipment meets regulatory standards, Bahrain's comprehensive legal and strategic approach guarantees a legal and secure operating environment.

This forward-thinking strategy not only strengthens Bahrain's telecommunications infrastructure but also supports its rapid development in the ICT sector, contributing significantly to the Government Work Plan. The National Frequency Plan (PDF, 2.2MB, 165 pages), available for public viewing, is an indispensable guide for anyone involved in Bahrain's telecommunications sector.
