Ooredoo Qatar launches 1Gbps fibre

31 May 2016

Ooredoo Qatar launched its new 1Gbps fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) service on Sunday 29 May, becoming the first telecoms operator in the country to offer Gigabit broadband connectivity. A 1Gbps subscription is priced at QAR1,900 (USD521) per month, with a minimum three-month contract required. The Qatari telco unveiled the new service at a special VIP event in Doha, where Waleed Al Sayed, CEO of Ooredoo Qatar, commented: ‘We are one of the first operators in the world to launch 1Gbps Fibre home services and the very first in Qatar. Ooredoo believes in future-proofing our network, and we continue to strive to bring our country the latest technology first.’

In addition, the company has premiered its all-new ‘Platinum Homezone’ service, which provides comprehensive Wi-Fi coverage for large villas and mansions. The service has been designed in cooperation with HPE Aruba and GBM, and Ooredoo notes that customers can even enjoy Wi-Fi coverage in their gardens and swimming pools by deploying the service, with the solution capable of transmitting through ‘stubborn internet conductor materials’, such as marble and oak.
