000 fibre customers, Ooredoo passes 100


Qatar’s Ooredoo now provides broadband fibre to more than 100,000 customers in Qatar, putting the country on track to become one of the best-connected nations in the world.

More than 80% of homes in Qatar now have an Ooredoo fibre connection, and the service continues to roll-out to new areas, the telco said.

In a global study based on figures from the FTTH Council, Qatar was recognised as the fastest nationwide rollout of fibre in the world in 2012, judged by the percentage of homes passed by fibre and the number of homes connected in the year – with customers benefiting from this global achievement.

Ooredoo said that its investment in fibre will continue in 2014. In addition to expanding the network across Qatar, Ooredoo is planning a sizeable infrastructure investment and capacity-building programme in the lead-up to the FIFA World Cup 2022.
