Bahrain's Batelco says that it has signed an agreement with India based Bharti Airtel, which appears to cover network sharing deals.
In a detail-light statement from the Bahrain based company, Batelco said that the new partnership between Batelco and Airtel will allow the two organisations to access each other's networks thereby enabling them to extend their reach into newer markets.
The company cited the Pan-Asian region as of particular interest.
Similarly, Airtel will be able to utilise Batelco's presence across the Middle East and other regions.
Beyond that, little was clear about what the deal means in practice.
