Batelco announced its support for 500 small and medium enterprise (SME) customers through financial support towards their fixed internet cost for 3 months. This initiative stems from the Company’s keenness to support this segment of customers during these exceptional circumstances, particularly those who operate in the sectors most affected by the pandemic.
Continuously being close to the customers’ needs, Batelco recognized the extent to which these SME’s were affected, and also identified their importance to the local economy and surrounding business community. This initiative serves to support the tremendous efforts made by the government of Bahrain in assisting the business sector during this pandemic, and forms part of Batelco’s commitment to giving back to the society in which it operates in its capacity as a proud member of Team Bahrain.
Batelco has undertaken a wide range of initiatives that benefit multiple segments of society including the provision of unlimited usage services for all Fixed Broadband customers, in addition to facilitating e-learning methods by providing free browsing on a number of educational websites. In light of the spread of Coronavirus in the Kingdom, the Company also donated BD3.5 million to the ‘There is Good in Us’ campaign, in addition to many other targeted community initiatives.
