Bahrain-based alternative telco 2Connect and Saudi Arabian cellco Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) will place a joint bid for the third mobile licence in Bahrain, reports Gulf Daily News. 2Connect said that it had been looking at bringing in other partners but there was not enough time before Sunday’s deadline, adding that there could be an opportunity for other investors to come onboard in the future, alongside a possible IPO. According to the newspaper, TRA general director Alan Horne said that two other operators had already confirmed they would be bidding for the licence.
