OOredoo’s Chief Operating Officer, Waleed Mohamed al-Sayed, said: “We need to be one step ahead of our customers and of the country’s needs, which is why we were the first to launch Fibre, first for 4G and now first to launch 4G+.

“This service truly puts us on the map as one of the most connected countries in the world and will provide the fastest and best LTE service in Qatar for our people."
