Bahrain’s telecommunications regulator extended a deadline to April 23 for 2Connect to stop services in the country.

The regulator had on March 22 set a deadline of March 27.

“The deadline has been extended by TRA in order to allow all customers of 2Connect to smoothly transition their services to another operator of choice” said Ahmed Aldoseri, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority’s director of information and communications technologies, said in an e-mailed statement late Wednesday.

It didn’t give a reason for the cancellation.
