Why can't broadband speed be increased?
The low throttled speeds of 10 to 25Kb per second is not good enough to use the Internet the way it's meant to be used. Why can't the Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) make every operator in Bahrain increase speeds to internationally acceptable levels, for internationally, or even regionally acceptable prices, while at the same time, convince all operators to forever drop the concepts of thresholds and throttled speeds from all of their packages? This situation of high prices and snail-crawling speeds has gone on for too long. Customers deserve justice and quality service for their hard-earned dinars.
Bahrain has always been celebrated as the most free market economy in the Arab world. But I do not see any free market competition for the provision of Internet services in Bahrain, which would only benefit Bahrainis and expatriates to enjoy high-speed Internet at competitively low costs, which is how a free market is meant to operate.
High-priced and yet slow-speed Internet is hurting everyone here, families, consumers, private businesses and homeowners. Is there not any way for the TRA to resolve this important issue for the benefit of Bahrain's people, economy and future generations?
