Vodafone Qatar has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to building a world-class infrastructure in support of the realisation of the country’s long term vision. Since switching its 5G network just over a year ago, the company has achieved a new milestone in terms of its 5G network coverage, and working aggressively to expand the 5G coverage area to almost across the country before Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022.
The fast growing telecom services provider unveiled yesterday the extensive reach if its 5G network that covers key locations across the country including 70 percent of Doha, and the roll-out continues to expand.
Commenting about the company’s position in the region in terms of its technology and the quality of services, Diego Camberos, Chief Operating Officer, said that Vodafone Qatar is very ambitious, which is in line with Qatar National Vision 2030. It is the first in many things, be it is related to introducing cutting-edge technology or in terms of high speed mobile network services, it will continue to achieve new milestones and its quest to serve unrivalled quality services.
“If you see the performance of our network and compare with our brand’s networks in other countries, you will experience the difference and realise that we are much more superior to others”, Camberos noted.
On the timeline for nationwide 5G coverage, he said that Vodafone Qatar took just nearly 3 years to expand its 4G network across the country, so 5G networks is likely to take more or less same time despite the fact it would require more number of towers and other related infrastructure for the high speed network.
“We hope that Vodafone Qatar’s 5G network will be available almost all the populated areas of the country before the 2022 Fifa games. The way our technological team is working we expect to achieve our target even ahead of our scheduled time frame,” he said.
