As the first, alternative and fully-licensed telecommunications provider based in the Kingdom of Bahrain, Kalaam Telecom (Kalaam) offers advanced voice, Internet, data and value added services to business customers. Shareholders in Kalaam Telecom include Kalaam Limited, Saudi Arabia's Shoaibi Group and ABQ Investments (ABQI) in partnership with Ali Zaid Al Quraishi & Brothers (AZAQ).
Launched its operations in March 2005, Kalaam serves both small & medium business customers and large corporations across different industries in Bahrain. A key indicator of the company’s success has been the amount of renewed and continuous business awarded to Kalaam over the past years. Besides serving the commercial business community in Bahrain, Kalaam has a well-established line of retail products that provide the most innovative, and cost-effective solutions that make communication accessible and affordable to anyone.
In 2018, Kalaam Telecom acquired Tawasul Telecom, a Kuwaiti brand in information and communication technology solution providers. The acquisition has further strengthened kalaam's position in the GCC and international market.
