Kuwait internet provider QualityNet has confirmed the start of “small services” in the UK and France as it steers its international expansion.
QualityNet deputy CEO, Mohammed Al Nusif, said after expanding its services into Bahrain about three years ago, it was now also operating in Iraq.
“We started in the region,” Al Nusif told Arabian Business after collecting the Internet Service Provider of the Year prize at the Arabian Business Kuwait awards on Sunday.
“Internationally, we just started our small service in the UK and Paris. So, we’re almost there.
“We’re aiming to have a partnership with international players to have co-branding with our partners.”
While he gave no further details about the new partnerships, Al Nusif said the company had reached its goal of becoming Kuwait’s number one internet provider.
He said the company, which was created in 1998, counted the Kuwaiti Government among its clients. However it also catered for the private sector.
“We opened our services internationally two or three years ago and we made it to be a regional player. We are now going for the international,” he said.
Al Nusif said the company generated $100m in revenue last year.
“We’re doing great,” he said.
