Batelco says working to restore internet services in Bahrain

Thursday 17 February 2011 | 12:04 CET | News
Bahrain's operator Batelco said that it is working to restore services after internet degradation hit the Gulf country's internet traffic amid widespread protests. The firm said in a statement that it appreciates customers' cooperation and understanding while it strives to restore full services. Protests in Bahrain entered their third day 16 February, as tens of thousands continued to occupy a major intersection in the capital and thousands more marched to mourn a second man killed in clashes with security forces. Earlier, a spokesman for Bahrain's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority told Zawya Dow Jones that the internet was working "as usual," adding that any slowdown in the internet could be due to "heavy usage in the country."
