5 Oct 2011

Qatar Telecom (Qtel) has announced plans to deploy a network of 900 Long Term Evolution (LTE) base stations, following the completion of trials of the 4G technology in the 800MHz band, although it is still waiting to receive commercial frequencies and is in discussion with equipment suppliers for the rollout. As reported by Cellular News, the LTE coverage will initially focus on highly populated urban areas including Doha before expanding across the country, and Qtel aims to offer seamless Wi-Fi offloading for continuity of high speed data service coverage.
