Vodafone Qatar announced further progress in accelerating Qatar towards becoming one of the most connected and technologically advanced countries in the world with news that it is rolling out fibre connectivity in New Salata and the Industrial Area, capable of handling speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second (1Gbps).

Residents in New Salata and the Industrial area will benefit from Vodafone Qatar’s ultrafast network by accessing so called ‘triple play’ services. Among these are very high speed internet, voice and multimedia content over IP, including high definition TV channels, premium content, video on demand and home entertainment. Businesses in both areas will also have access to a wide range of enterprise services including smart solutions and new applications such as smart security, asset tracking and smart metering. These technologies of the future will help the businesses operating in New Salata and the Industrial area to optimise, automate and innovate.

Vodafone Qatar’s CEO Sheikh Hamad Abdulla Jassim Al-Thani, said: “Vodafone Qatar is committed to developing a world-class telecommunications infrastructure in Qatar that delivers the benefits of sustainable and effective competition through increased choice, better value, better service and innovation to consumers and businesses alike. The roll out of our ambitious fixed line plans in locations around the country will be instrumental in driving forward Qatar’s digital agenda.” Vodafone Qatar recently announced that it will roll out its fibre network in Lusail City and the Pearl-Qatar, building on fixed line services it currently provides in areas including West Bay and Barwa City, Mesaimeer.

Drawing on the very best of the Vodafone brand globally, Vodafone Qatar is able to access the needed solutions and support needed to move Qatar towards becoming one of the most connected countries in the world.
