Qtel Group will be highlighting its achievements in the regional communications sector at ‘ITU World 2012’, the major event that is hosting key names in global communications in Dubai this week.
The company is working to deliver the most relevant technologies to meet the needs of its customers as it looks to provide the best customer experience and stay ahead of rising demand for mobile Broadband services across the developing world.
“We aim to provide our customers with the most advanced technology for voice and data services, especially delivering improved high-speed 3G services and upgrading to the ultrafast 4G LTE network where appropriate,” said Paul Salmon, Chief Technology Officer of Qtel Group.
“Across all of our markets in the MENA region and Southeast Asia, we have plans to upgrade more than 15,000 base stations over the next three-to-five years”, he said.
Qtel Group companies are rolling out 4G LTE networks in Qatar and Oman in staggered launches over the next several months, aiming to provide some of the best 4G penetration in the Middle East and North Africa, on average offering speeds that are three-to-six times faster than 3G.
The 4G LTE customers will be able to take advantage of the ultrafast speeds for both personal and business use. They will be able to watch high-definition video, play interactive games, download and upload large files, videoconference for their businesses, view multimedia-rich news websites, or read enhanced e-books. “Our 4G services sit on the cutting-edge of our overall network enhancement strategy,” said Salmon.
