Mobile operator Ooredoo has announced that Saudi operator STC will acquire full ownership of Bravo, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ooredoo's Wataniya unit. Bravo has been operating a Push-to-Talk mobile service in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia commercially since 2005.

Bravo and its specialised technology standard are no longer core to Ooredoo group's strategy.
