Bahrain scraps 4G auction plans

Manama, July 22, 2013

Bahrain has scrapped plans to auction off fourth generation (4G) mobile frequencies and will simply grant licences to the three existing mobile operators, a report said.

The decision was taken during the weekly Cabinet meeting, according to the Gulf daily News, our sister publication.

A planned auction of 4G licences was put on hold earlier this year after Menatelecom won a court order freezing the process. The telecom firm had gone to court to contest its alleged exclusion from the bidding process. – TradeArabia News Service
