High Focus on Fixed and Mobile Broadband in Qatar

The focus of fixed broadband network deployment has firmly shifted to fibre in Qatar, with the number of DSL connections declining by around 100,000 since they reached their peak in 2011. Today, 99% of households are in areas covered by a fibre network and Qatar offers some of the fastest average internet speeds in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

Qatar’s mobile sector is also very progressive with LTE networks in place and significant activity taking place regarding 5G development. Qatar is considered to be one of the most highly connected markets in the Middle East and the consumers are becoming more and more savvy in their use of digital technology services. 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.

Qatar has increasingly become a progressive market for telecoms and a leader in the Middle East. The country has a vast array of networks and services on offer including 4G, VoLTE, LTE-A, M2M and fibre-based technologies. It is also looking towards a future based on 5G.

Key Developments:

  • There is lack of competition in the fixed market in Qatar.
  • Broadband penetration is among the highest in the region, with services available via ADSL, Fibre-to-the-Home (FttH), wireless and mobile.
  • Mobile revenues in 2016 reflected that Qatar’s mobile market had matured.
  • Increasing international capacity will assist in Qatar’s long term development goals as stated in its National Development Strategy document Qatar National Vision 2030.
