Zain Bahrain invests in 5G, LTE enhancements

Bahrain-based telecommunication company Zain Bahrain has promised continued investment to expand its 4G and 5G network footprint in the country, with a strong focus on the 5G and LTE enhancements to further improve reliability and indoor coverage.

The mobile broadband network operator in the kingdom said in a press release that significant investments have been made to modernize and expand Zain Bahrain’s 4G layer to support higher speeds and capacity.

The network expansions and investments highlight Zain Bahrain’s capability and continuous commitment to drive further digitalization in Bahrain and empower its customers with services that enhance their digital lives.

"The company will continue to cement its position in reliability and quality mobile coverage by enhancing its 5G services to new areas across the country and expand its coverage in new housing areas including Salman Town, Khalifa City, East Hidd and Ramli Housing Area," said the release.

The provider of fixed and mobile telecommunications services, including voice, video, short message service (SMS), multimedia messaging service (MMS), data connectivity, and value-added service (VAS) in the Kingdom of Bahrain revealed that it continues to set new precedents for customer experience, provide enhanced connectivity solutions and expand its 5G footprint, through Ericsson’s Radio Access Network (RAN) solution which includes the use of highest capacity radio equipment and baseband components.

The solutions will further upgrade Zain’s existing mobile networks and will provide enhanced 5G coverage, and advanced network capabilities such as 5G carrier aggregation, it said.

Zain Bahrain supports all the latest 5G -ready devices that are whitelisted to operate in Zain’s network and the 5G equipment that the company has invested in will increase its efficiency despite delivering higher speeds, the press release claimed.
