Batelco Tuesday announced it would slash its broadband rates for business customers nearly in half at the first of the year.
The company said in a statement that the cuts were in response to booming demand from the business community for greater access to broadband and a better deal on the DSL costs.
"This move that has been welcomed by the Kingdom's extensive business community entails reductions of up to 43 percent on Broadband Business Packages while Broadband Business usage rates have been slashed by an impressive 50 percent," Senior Manager Adel Daylami said.
In addition, Batelco planned to launch a new broadband service tailored for small businesses with a single computer user.
