A Comparative View of 4G, FTTx, and 5G Plans in Bahrain
This IDC Market Perspective presents a comparative view of Bahrain telecom operators' data-only tariff plans and Bahrain's position in relation to those offerings in other 5G-live countries — Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states and South Africa. IDC has calculated the median values of the monthly plan prices, gigabyte prices, and data usage limits for 4G, 5G, and fiber to the "x" (FTTx) data plans. The report compares these Bahrain plans with the combined median values of plans across the region. Each country included in this research is covered in a separate study.
"With demand for industry-specific use cases and applications growing, 5G can add value by enabling innovative use cases and delivering long-term benefits to businesses. As such, 5G will be a crucial part of Bahrain's plans to modernize and digitize its economy. As 5G technology continues to mature, its role will increase in emerging use cases such as drones, intelligent transportation systems, video surveillance, Smart Cities, and Industry 4.0." — Research Analyst Jawairia Asif, IDC Saudi Arabia
