Exclusive: Greenisis Sneak Peek

Just got an email from Greenisis (previous post on them), with a bit of good news for those waiting for their launch!

  • Their first shop will open next week, at the Manama Car Park building.
  • Plans start from BD15.
  • Last but not least: TRULY UNLIMITED (fingers crossed that translates to truly uncapped :-p).

The most important line in the email, and I quote: “We will be offering truly unlimited broadband from BD15 per month!”

I’m just as anxious waiting for the full details!…

Menatelecom: Complicated “Unlimited” menaHome Packages

A couple of days ago, I received an SMS on my phone from Menatelecom announcing their new menaHome (the residential tier of services) packages.

First thing I noticed is that they have definitely added more information (international rates, local rates, throttle speed etc…).

Now the bad thing is that it seems like they are offering more speed but the same data transfer for several packages (2 to 6Mbps).…
