Zain Bahrain spokesman said: Zain Bahrain is committed to providing the best and most advanced telecommunications experience to the people of Bahrain - and that includes every effort to ensure that our services and equipment meet the best international standards. This also applies to our mobile base stations that are part of the 'hardware' used to maintain our network.
The Zain mobile base stations meet all the health requirements recommended by global bodies such as the World Health Organisation.
The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) commissioned an independent survey at the end of 2005, to study radiation from mobile base stations in Bahrain. It was conducted by German consulting company Rohde and Schwarz; another independent study was conducted more recently by the University of Bahrain and examined by Professor Paolo Vecchia, chairman of the International Commission on Non-Ionised Radiation Protection and an internationally renowned expert on the effects of radiation.
Each of these studies involved detailed measurement and analysis of the level of radio frequency radiation emitted from base station antennas in Bahrain. The measurement results of both studies fall well below the levels accepted by the World Health Organisation.
In light of the above studies, we would like to reassure GDN readers that there is no evidence to support any fears of health threats from our mobile base stations.
