Ooredoo Qatar has announced its successful support during the AFC Asian Cup final match, marking a milestone in fan connectivity and a remarkable showcase of network capability.
The final game at the Lusail Stadium, which had as many as 86,492 fans witnessing Qatar win the tournament for the second time in a row, saw total data traffic soaring to 35TB, equating to the same digital engagement levels of the opening match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
A significant portion of this success was attributed to Ooredoo’s advanced 5G network, which accounted for 53% of the connectivity, delivering an average downlink speed of 244Mbps and an uplink speed of 50Mbps.
The event also witnessed a new record in voice calls, with 726K calls made, of which a staggering 91% were high-quality VoLTE, achieving a Call Setup Success Rate (CSSR) of 99.97% and a drop rate as low as 0.01%.
The success extended beyond the stadium, with various hotspots across Qatar, including Lusail Boulevard, Katara, The Pearl, Souq Waqif, Doha Port, and Al Bidda Park, experiencing record-breaking data traffic and voice calls, turning every corner of Qatar into a hub for sharing the nation's success with the world.
