Bahrain-based real estate development company Diyar Al Muharraq has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with STC Bahrain, a digital enabler, to construct and operate telecommunication towers within its upcoming integrated city in the Kingdom.
Following the plan issued by the Telecommunication Regulatory Authority to rectify and reduce the number of telecommunication towers, the sites will be shared by all telecommunication companies operating in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Following the completion of the project, the masterplan will include a total of 13 operating towers.
Commenting on the agreement, Eng. Nezar Banabeela, Chief Executive Officer of STC Bahrain, said: “At STC Bahrain, we continuously invest in Bahrain’s telecommunications infrastructure by providing coverage to various locations in order to serve a larger segment of customers. Due to the increase in the number of interested customers, we aim to offer the best services to meet their daily needs and stay closer to them. We are also working on supporting the national telecommunications plan and strengthening our presence as a leading telecommunications company across new areas in Bahrain with the aim to cover more locations across the Kingdom.”
Eng. Ahmed Ali Alammadi, CEO of Diyar Al Muharraq, added: “Our partnership with STC Bahrain comes as part of our commitment to provide residents and visitors with a holistic and integrated infrastructure. Through the new telecommunication towers, residents will be provided with stronger network and internet services. We look forward to expanding the scope of our partnerships to include major service providers in various fields as we aim to further develop the local real estate sector.”
