22 May 2009

Qatar Telecom (Qtel) has announced that it has signed up over 10,000 customers to its IPTV service, Mozaic TV+, after extending coverage of the service to around 80% of the population. Quoted in a report from Gulf Times, a Qtel spokesperson said that Mozaic TV+ was now accessible up to 3km from either a Qtel ADSL exchange or a remote line unit (RLU). Around 170 RLUs have been rolled out to date, and the telco is adding 20 RLUs per year, whilst working to improve service quality, with the aim of giving the whole of Qatar access to IPTV in the next few years, continued the spokesperson. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, Mozaic TV+ was launched in May 2007, providing broadcast and on-demand IPTV, DSL/Wi-Fi broadband internet access and fixed voice telephony over the same copper line.
