"bravO! Telecom" is a digital radio trunking operator in Saudi Arabia under a B.O.T agreement with the incumbent operator STC. It was launched in third quarter of 2005 using Motorola's proprietary iDEN technology operating on the SMR-800 frequency band.

bravO! is mainly focused in offering professional radio service to the corporate and governmental sector, with no consumer-centric prepaid offering due to the fact that network is in partnership with the incumbent operator STC which runs its own GSM & 3G network under the commercial name of "Aljawal" which primarily addresses this sector.

The other two cellular operators launch a PTT service similar in function to the one uniquely offered by bravO! through its digital trunking network, but the former companies used a technology called PoC to facilitate this offering, however; bravO! push-to-talk service remains the fastest and most reliable in the industry given the dedicated and optimized nature of the iDEN network being used specifically for this purpose.

bravO!'s sister company in neighboring Jordan XPress operates the same system, which enables customers in both sides to place international PTT calls, a similar service to the one operated between Sprint Nextel's iDEN subscribers and their counterparts in other operators in the Americas such as Telus iDEN customers in Canada and Mexico's Nextel subscribers.

The company is currently owned by only two shareholders, a local company called NASCO and the Dubai based Wataniya Int'l which was later wholly acquired by Qatari based Qtel during the second quarter of 2007.
