VIVA launched 5G in Bahrain

VIVA Bahrain has recently launched its home broadband 5G network through new add-on plans and 5G-enabled devices. 

VIVA Bahrain is among the first telecom operators to launch the 5G network globally, and is offering 5G home broadband with advanced indoor and outdoor routers, providing an improved streaming and gaming experience.

The home broadband package can be activated with an indoor router for $27 (BD10) per month or an outdoor router for $33 (BD12.5) per month.

“Driving Bahrain’s digital telecommunications future with investments in revolutionary technologies and applications has been the forefront of VIVA Bahrain’s information and communications technology services,” said Nezar Banabeela, VIVA Bahrain CEO at the 5G launch.

“The start of our 5G commercial journey is a milestone for us towards this direction as we pave the way for future connectivity and add it to the kingdom’s leading 4G network. We’re really excited to embark on this new digital journey that holds incredible potential and ability to connect everything and enhance our customers’ lives with new experiences never imagined before,” he added.

VIVA Bahrain was the first operator in Bahrain to commercially pilot 5G back in June 2018 with a major showcase in City Centre Bahrain.
