DOHA: To celebrate Ooredoo’s launch of one of the first ‘5G Speed Experiences’ available anywhere in the world, the company has produced a special advertisement showcasing the milestones of telecommunications in Qatar.
The video, which is available now via the company’s YouTube channel in English and Arabic, highlights the history of Ooredoo, from the first telephone line in 1949, the launch of dial up Internet and the 3G network, up to Ooredoo’s 5G experience.
So far, the video has been viewed by more than 150,000 people and has received a host of positive comments on social media and the video platform, with many customers expressing their excitement for Ooredoo’s upcoming 5G roll-out.
The current ‘5G Speed Experience’ is available in select locations and offers an extremely high speed and low latency network with initial speeds of up to (and in some cases exceeding) 1Gbps.
Access to the ‘5G Speed Experience’ requires a special smartphone that has been calibrated to work with the Ooredoo pre-standardised 5G network. The company has announced it plans to roll-out its 5G network as soon as possible.
Ooredoo first launched its Supernet campaign in 2015 and the company has gone on to invest heavily in ensuring the fastest Internet speeds and crystal-clear communications for its customers.
Talking about the investment Ooredoo has made, Waleed Al Sayed, Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “Launching the Supernet was a way for Ooredoo to show our customers our dedication and commitment to making Qatar a truly connected country. We’ve invested heavily in our infrastructure to provide a better customer experience on the Ooredoo network, as well as contribute to the Qatar National Vision’s aim to boost the knowledge-based economy, by enabling seamless access to the financial, educational, and social services the Internet can provide.”
Ooredoo is Qatar’s leading communications company and continues to enhance Qatar’s mobile, Wi-Fi, and nationwide Ooredoo Fibre networks on the Ooredoo Supernet.
