Batelco, Bahrain's leading telecom services provider, has successfully completed the technical deployment of eSim technology and made its first eSim-equipped device call.
The service will be available for customers from December 6. Customers may visit any Batelco retail shop to activate the service. With this deployment, Batelco took further steps to ensure all requirements are met for the delivery of the state-of-the-art technology and exceptional experience, covering all aspects including security protocols, the company said.
The new service, which is set to transform the landscape in mobile technology, will deliver a host of convenient benefits for users and greatly enhance their experience. An eSim is an integrated SIM chip that is embedded in mobile devices, enabling customers to have multiple numbers using one mobile phone without having to switch sim cards.
More and more devices are being launched equipped with eSIM capability such as iPhone XS, XR and Max and it is anticipated that in the near future most device manufacturers will shift to eSIM technology.
Batelco, in line with its strategy to deliver the latest technologies, strives to continuously enhance its portfolio to provide customers with relevant products and services that meet their requirements and also support the kingdom’s efforts to be at the forefront in the technology sector, it said. -
