Vodafone Qatar has signed an interim wholesale agreement with Qatar National Broadband Network (Q.NBN), the company responsible for deploying and managing the country’s fibre-optic network.
The deal will allow Vodafone Qatar to use Q.NBN's network to deliver telecom services to its customers.
Under this interim wholesale agreement, Vodafone will initially provide broadband services to residential and business customers in Barwa City and Barwa Commercial Avenue.
"This interim wholesale agreement reflects the commitment and partnership between Q.NBN and Vodafone to accelerate fibre penetration to homes and businesses to energise Qatar's knowledge-based economy, reflecting Qatar's,” said Mohamad Al-Mannai, CEO, Q.NBN.
The agreement is the first such wholesale agreement to enable a licensed telecom operator to use Q.NBN's network to deliver telecom services to customers.
