The latest research published by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) shows download speeds on 5G networks in Bahrain reached a peak of 3.2Gbps in 2022, a significant increase on the 1.3Gbps offered by operators when 5G was launched in the Kingdom in 2019. The TRA’s 2022 quality of service (QoS) audit found the average 5G download speed achieved by the Kingdom’s three mobile network operators (MNOs) – Batelco, stc and Zain – increased from 721.1Mbps in 2021 to 900.9Mbps last year, while average uplink throughput rose from 76.2Mbps to 111.4Mbps. Furthermore, the regulator highlighted that 4G network average downlink speeds have more than doubled since 2020, rising from 84.7Mbps in 2020 to 266.3Mbps in 2022. The QoS survey was conducted between 30 October 2022 and 18 January 2023.
