Plans are on the anvil to enhance the Underground Telecommunication corridors in the Kingdom. Telecommunication Regulatory Authority, in a tender, said they are looking to appoint a consultancy to study the possibility of enhancing the underground telecommunication infrastructure deployed in Bahrain.
The tender document says TRA is looking forward to preparing policies and standards for the deployment in line with best practices in the industry.
Those interested should make their bids before the 16th of next month. Bidder should produce a BD500 bond and fee of BD15 for participating.
The telecommunications sector in Bahrain is robust and progressive, and it contributes about 4% a year to the GDP. In Bahrain, the telecommunications industry has the right to a one-meter corridor on each side of public roads for telecommunication infrastructure.
