Vodafone Qatar extends 5G coverage in Doha

21 Dec 2018

Vodafone Qatar has announced that it has deployed its 5G network in Souq Waqif in capital city Doha in celebration of Qatar National Day, describing it as ‘the latest populous city centre location to be covered by Vodafone’s 5G network’. The Souq Waqif launch follows the company’s 5G deployment in key locations across the country earlier this year, including, Katara, Abu Hamour, Al Azizya, Al Mamoura, Al Rayyan, Salwa Road and Umm Salal Muhammed.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, in late July Vodafone Qatar disclosed its first tests using spectrum in the 3.5GHz band allocated for 5G, revealing that it was deploying a 5G network at more than 50 sites across the country.
