The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Bahrain announced the publication of their latest Quality of Service Report, shedding light on the progress of 5G Networks.

A comparison between 4G and 5G performance shows average speeds of approximately 80 megabits per second compared to 5G’s average of approximately 600 megabits per second, though records higher than 1 GB per second were observed.

According to the report, the availability of modern telecommunications services and ensuring their quality are critical elements for the success of the Kingdom of Bahrain’s digital economy. Such services are heavily used and will be used even further with the growth of IOT by consumers in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The report included some important observations about the coverage of 5G Networks. It showed the coverage areas on the map of Bahrain to enable the consumer to know the current coverage areas, which is expected to increase in the near future.

Commenting on the report, Eng. Mohamed Alnoaimi, TRA’s Director of Technical & Operations, stated that “This report and audit is something we carry out regularly in the interest of monitoring the current state of mobile coverage in the kingdom, giving consumers insight into decisions on which operator covers their area best, and serves their needs.” He further added that “This time around, we’ve covered the latest results on how 5G adoption is progressing and developing, and the information we’ve gathered will be important to consumers and businesses deciding whether it’s time to transfer wireless internet services from 4G to 5G technologies, and the data speaks for itself.”
