Ooredoo claims 200,000 fibre broadband customers

17 Dec 2014

Ooredoo Qatar reached the milestone of 200,000 customers connected to its fibre broadband network on 13 December, it announced in a press release yesterday, having launched the high speed triple-play connectivity service nearly three years ago. Ooredoo added that around 9,000 homes a month are currently being connected to Ooredoo Fibre, supporting 100Mbps broadband speeds, voice telephony and IPTV (‘Mozaic TV’), while the lion’s share of its existing fixed broadband customers have now been transferred from ADSL connections. Sheikh Saud bin Nasser al-Thani, CEO, Ooredoo Qatar, said: ‘As our community prepares to celebrate Qatar National Day together, I am proud that Ooredoo has lived up to its promise to connect people to the fastest-available fibre network.’ Ooredoo’s fibre investment will continue throughout 2015, while the full-service operator is also planning a significant infrastructure investment and capacity-building programme in the run-up to the FIFA World Cup 2022 hosted by Qatar.
