13 Jan 2014

Ooredoo Qatar has announced reaching the milestone of 100,000 fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband customers, two years after commercially launching the service, whilst it also revealed that over 80% of homes in Qatar are now passed by the FTTH network, under a rollout which continues to reach new areas ‘every week’. Residential and business customers can subscribe to basic direct fibre internet packages starting at QAR233 (USD63.95) for a home broadband and fixed voice package, while a premium 100Mbps plan costs QAR650 per month. Ooredoo’s direct fibre users can access high definition (HD) ‘Mozaic’ IPTV services, including hundreds of live channels, interactive features including pause, rewind and record, plus thousands of on-demand titles, at prices starting from QAR17 per month. In addition to expanding the fibre access network across Qatar, Ooredoo is planning a ‘sizeable infrastructure investment and capacity-building programme’ in the lead-up to the FIFA football World Cup 2022.
