Manama, February 4, 2013
Bahrain is planning to set up a new BD26 million ($67.2 million) Internet access network, which, once approved, will be carried out over four years in three phases, a report said.
Bahrain’s Cabinet referred a memo by Minister of State for Telecommunications Affairs Shaikh Fawaz bin Mohammed Al Khalifa to the ministerial committees for services, infrastructure, financial and economic affairs for more scrutiny, said the Gulf Daily News.
The project is part of national strategy to promote speedy and safe cyber services, upgrade Bahrain's Internet infrastructure and ensure a competitive environment and affordable prices for all users. – TradeArabia News Service
