 Name Bahrain Telecommunications Company (Batelco)
 Grouping Operator

The Batelco Group is using info-communications technology - the mix of communications, computing, entertainment, mobility and information - to enable customers to improve their lives at home, at work and on the move.

In addition to standard business offerings, such as voice and data communications, we provide a consultancy-type service in tailor-made solutions and applications. And in conjunction with our global partner Cable & Wireless, Batelco is able to offer end-to-end worldwide reach to business customers who run international operations.

Batelco has generated an impressive track-record of growth since incorporation in 1981. The company has an authorised, paid-up share capital of BD100 million (US$265 million) and total shareholders funds of more than BD250 million (US$662 million).

OUTSIDE of Bahrain, Batelcos credibility as a technological leader in the Middle East has helped in the creation of four joint-venture companies in countries where our experience and know-how are in demand.

Through its wholly-owned subsidiary - Batelco Middle East Company (BMEC) - Batelco holds stakes in companies competing in Kuwait  (Qualitynet), Saudi Arabia (Batelco Jeraisy Ltd), Jordan (Batelco Jordan) and Egypt (Soficom) to provide Internet and data communications services. The quality of their services has led to major contracts and industry awards for excellence.
