Diyar Al Muharraq, one of the largest real estate development companies in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Saudi Telecom Company-owned operator stc Bahrain, to construct and operate additional telecommunication towers.
The result, say the partners, will be significant improvements to network connection and internet services in the areas housing the towers.
There’s also an environmental angle to this partnership. Following the plan issued by the Telecommunication Regulatory Authority to reduce the number of telecommunication towers, these sites will be shared by all telecommunication companies operating in Bahrain. Following the completion of the project, the masterplan will include a total of 13 operating towers.
Diyar Al Muharraq is one of the largest integrated cities in Bahrain, offering a variety of housing solutions and what it calls a unique, balanced mix of residential, commercial, recreational, and healthcare facilities, creating a fully integrated and futuristic model city.
This isn’t the first involvement of Diyar Al Muharraq in the telecommunications sector. In September last year we reported that the principal telecommunications company in Bahrain, Batelco, had announced the expansion of its mobile network to cover major housing developments currently being built by the Ministry of Housing and the private sector across Bahrain – including Diyar Al Muharraq.
