Menatelecom, an investment subsidiary of Kuwait Finance House (Bahrain) and the provider of the most powerful, and shortly, the fastest Internet service in Bahrain, has announced signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Huawei to deploy its latest 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless network in Bahrain.
