BNET's Fiber Optic Upgrade Initiative

BNET said the project includes migrating 100 percent of its copper customers to fiber optic services, which will increase fiber penetration by approximately 15 percent and provide high-speed fixed broadband to meet the needs of individuals and businesses across the country.

Transitioning from Copper to Fiber Optic Networks

Through this project, BNET will significantly contribute to enhancing the internet experience for residents and businesses, improving Bahrain's ranking in internet speeds, as the old copper lines are incapable of providing equivalent speeds to fiber, the company said.

BNET commented, "The nationwide fiber optic upgrade project represents a significant leap forward for Bahrain's digital infrastructure. By providing high-speed, reliable internet to residents and businesses, we are empowering them to fully participate in the digital economy and unlocking a world of new possibilities."
