Qatar is demonstrating leadership in 5G development
There has been significant activity surrounding 5G development in Qatar for some time, with Ooredoo Qatar showing particular interest by establishing partnerships with solution providers like Ericsson and Nokia.


These efforts towards 5G development culminated in 2018 with Ooredoo Qatar claiming it had deployed the first commercial 5G network in the world. In May 2018 it had switched on its live 3.5GHz 5G (Non-Standalone) New Radio (NR) network and a couple of months later it further announced it had deployed 50 active sites around the capital of Doha.
Not to be undone, Vodafone Qatar soon announced it had also conducted 5G testing and began deploying its 5G network at around 50 locations across Qatar. By the end of 2018 August 2018, this initial 5G network had been launched and Vodafone had connected its first enterprise customer. However until 5G compatible devices become available - both operators will be unable to offer significant mass market 5G services.
Qatar’s mobile sector has been very progressive for some time, with substantial LTE networks in place. It is also considered to be one of the most highly connected markets in the Middle East with broadband penetration among the highest in the region. Services are available via ADSL, Fibre-to-the-Home (FttH), wireless and mobile. There is lack of competition in the fixed market in Qatar however.
Qatari citizens are some of the largest users of the Internet in the Middle East and have also embraced Over-The-Top (OTT) services. Generally speaking, the GCC countries, including Qatar, represent the more progressive countries in terms of telecoms development in the Middle East region.

This valuable report provides analyses, information, industry statistics and insights into Qatar’s progressive telecoms sector. It also includes BuddeComm’s Middle East Telecoms Maturity Index, which is an index (on a scale between 0 and 100) that measures and ranks the relative maturity of the telecoms industry in 11 countries across the Middle East.

Key developments:
Recently consumers have embraced bundled packages, with both the uptake of double and triple-play increasing considerably, assisting the operators in their attempts to diversify operations.
The CRA increased its powers in 2018, allowing it greater scrutiny of the operators.
Increasing international capacity will assist in Qatar’s long-term development goals as stated in its National Development Strategy document Qatar National Vision 2030.

Companies mentioned in this report include:
Ooredoo Qatar, Vodafone Qatar, Qatar National Broadband Network (QNBN).
