As part of Qtel Group’s global rebranding to Ooredoo, Wataniya Telecoms has become Ooredoo. Kuwait’s first privately owned telecommunications company has been the latest to adopt the brand, joining Qatar, Algeria, the Maldives, Myanmar and Tunisia.
With this last company, Ooredoo has successfully rolled out the new brand across the Middle East, North Africa and Southern Asia. This global brand roll out also includes new services and initiatives designed to promote “human growth in their respective countries,” said the company in a statement.
Specifically in Kuwait, Ooredoo will launch a range of life enhancing consumer and business to business services, including Kuwait’s first e-commerce site for purchasing electronics.
“Kuwait is a hub for ICT innovation, and in a highly-competitive market we aim to provide the best technology and customer experience. Make data access available for all over our leading mobile broadband networks will promote human growth, with initiatives across e-commerce and social development enhancing people’s daily lives,” said Dr. Nasser Marafih, Group CEO at Ooredoo.
Abdulaziz Fakhroo, general manager and CEO in Kuwait said: “We are very proud to become part of a community-focused global brand that has a strong sense of responsibility towards the markets where our customers live and work. In Kuwait, we will be known not just by the things we do, but how we do them and a unique customer experience that will delivers tangible results.”
