Tuesday 28 September 2021 | 14:41 CET | News
Batelco has announced that the 2G network that has been in service for over 27 years will be phased out by the end of November to make way for technologies that offer higher speeds and better quality.  Batelco has been inviting 2G users to switch to a 3G, 4G or 5G-compatible device to keep benefiting from its services. Those still using 2G devices are requested to complete their transition by 30 November.
