Diyar Al Muharraq, one of the largest real estate development firms in Bahrain, has signed an agreement with stc, a major digital enabler in the region, to construct and operate telecommunication towers within its integrated city off Muharraq island. This will significantly improve network connection and internet services.
Following the plan issued by the Bahrain Telecommunication Regulatory Authority to rectify and reduce the number of telecommunication towers, these sites will be shared by all telecommunication companies operating in the kingdom, said the statement from stc.
The masterplan will include a total of 13 operating towers, it added.
On the tie-up, CEO Eng Nezar Banabeela said: “At stc Bahrain, we continuously invest in Bahrain’s telecommunications infrastructure by providing coverage to various locations in order to serve a larger segment of customers. Due to the increase in the number of interested customers, we aim to offer the best services to meet their daily needs and stay closer to them."
"We are also working on supporting the national telecommunications plan and strengthening our presence as a leading telecommunications company across new areas in Bahrain with the aim to cover more locations across the kingdom,” he stated.
Diyar Al Muharraq CEO Engineer Ahmed Ali Alammadi said: “Our partnership with stc Bahrain comes as part of our commitment to provide residents and visitors a holistic and integrated infrastructure. Through the new telecommunication towers, residents will be provided with stronger network and internet services."
"We look forward to expanding the scope of our partnerships to include major service providers in various fields as we aim to further develop the local real estate sector,” he added.
