Batelco to remove more payphones after customer consultation

Tuesday 23 December 2014 | 11:29 CET | News
Bahrain operator Batelco wants to remove a select number of payphones and has asked customers to submit feedback regarding payphones that are rarely or never used. The selected payphones have been marked with stickers. Batelco has asked customers to contact them within 60 days with any objection they may have to the removal of these specific phones. Batelco carried out a similar exercise in 2011 and 2012 when a number of rarely used payphones were removed following consultation with customers.
