Vodafone Qatar Switches on Broadband Services in the Pearl
08 June, 2010: Vodafone Qatar has now switched on broadband services in the man-made island, The Pearl-Qatar, only weeks after announcing their partnership with United Development Company.
Residents and businesses are enjoying access to Vodafone's broadband service, which is providing them with high speed internet access on a trial basis pending commercial launch.
For the first time at The Pearl, all users now have access to internet speed at 5Mbps, which delivers access to international websites at a competitive speed.
"We're thrilled that The Pearl-Qatar's occupants are the first people in Qatar to have the opportunity to use Vodafone's broadband services. The feedback we have received from The Pearl's occupants on the trial has been great and we look forward to providing them with more exciting services," said Vodafone Qatar's CEO, Grahame Maher.
Vodafone Qatar's deployment activities in The Pearl are proceeding according to plan and it is anticipated that Vodafone will meet its very aggressive launch timeline.
Vodafone Qatar will be communicating the full proposition and when it will be available in due course.
