Vodafone Qatar, in partnership with Huawei, has announced achievement of data speeds of 1Gbps in a test environment with the introduction of 4.5G technology.

Ian Gray, CEO, Vodafone Qatar said: “The introduction of a 4.5G network will enable the implementation of smart city technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud services in the country by providing the mobile broadband capability that underpins any smart city initiative. Vodafone is committed to continually investing in Qatar’s ICT sector which will play a key role in realising Qatar National Vision 2030.”

ZongYan, CEO of Huawei Qatar, said: “We are delighted to build on our strategic partnership with Vodafone Qatar and contribute to accelerating advanced ICT services in Qatar. A 4.5G network enables Vodafone Qatar to offer its customers true broadband speeds that haven’t been experienced in the region before, and pave the way for the introduction of more advanced mobile services in the near future.”

Building on Vodafone’s existing 4G+ services, the new 4.5G network will be rolled out across Vodafone Qatar’s network in the next few months.
