5G services via 35 network partners in 27 countries now added to Vodafone roaming portfolio

DOHA, Qatar, 9 November 2021: Vodafone Qatar has today announced that it has further expanded its 5G roaming footprint, which now includes 35 roaming partners in 27 countries across the globe. Due to its extensive roaming capabilities, Vodafone has been classified by the telecoms industry body GSMA as a Premier Operator for the seventh year in a row, and is the only operator in Qatar to have achieved such a classification.
In 2019, Vodafone first launched its 5G roaming services for travellers to the United Kingdom and has continued to build on its 5G roaming capabilities since then. Vodafone’s comprehensive global roaming network includes services in over 221 countries and with 500 roaming partners worldwide, as well as inflight services with AeroMobile and OnAir across more than 60 airlines and maritime services across more than 700 ships. Vodafone’s Passport Pack listing covers services in 145 countries, which users can access from only QR100 per week.
Vodafone Qatar, Chief Operating Officer, Carlos Diego Camberos Mariaca said: “We’re continuously enhancing our 5G roaming footprint through strategic partnerships combined with the power of our advanced GigaNet network, for the benefit of our customers. We are also immensely proud to still be recognised as an industry leader by the GSMA and to have retained the title of a Premier Operator for the last seven years.
“Following the disruption of the last 18 months, consumers and businesses are facing the prospect of travel routes reopening or are perhaps forced to travel in different ways than they are used to. As a result, connectivity has become more important than ever before both during travel and when abroad. Through its extensive partner network, Vodafone provides a reliable and robust network that can support our customers when it matters most, to ensure an efficient, enjoyable and streamlined travel experience.”
