A new type of communications infrastructure in Bahrain
An overview of the Bahraini market as the regulator proposes rebuilding towers from the bottom up
Governments, regulators and MNOs in the Middle East are starting to think carefully about how best to use and deploy their wireless communications infrastructure, and nowhere more so than in Bahrain, where the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority has published an extensive new report which assesses both the quality and quantity of towers needed in Bahrain. As a result of this report, which carefully considers social and environmental factors as well as commercial drivers, we can expect to see as much as 90% of Bahrain’s tower stock being re-built over the next 15 years. TowerXchange takes a look at the Bahraini market, the history of the existing infrastructure and how ready the country is for a third party towerco.
