Batelco mobile users traveling to Armenia will now be able to make
and receive calls while they are there, thanks to the deal struck
between Batelco and Armenia Telephone Company (ArmenTel) in Armenia.

Roaming facilities between Bahrain and Armenia took effect last week.
The signing between Batelco and ArmenTel preceded the start of
operations between the telecoms companies.

Ebrahim Al Sayed, acting senior manager mobile services at Batelco
said: ‘We have been working to expand the international network that
our customers are using for roaming services. The signing of this
agreement increases the already substantial reach Batelco’s mobile
users have.’

‘Our aim is to provide a network for our customers that encompasses
anywhere they might travel to. The recent signing has allowed us to
extend the scope of international roaming connections for Batelco
mobile customers by a significant amount.’

Batelco now has commercial roaming agreements with 103 countries and
248 operators.
