A partnership agreement has been signed between Ooredoo and AFG College with the University of Aberdeen, to share technology expertise and services between the company and the college in Qatar.
Qatar's businesses have not been impacted by the ongoing global cyber attack, Ooredoo said and noted the company’s experts are working with the Qatari authorities and international information security leaders.
Ooredoo has launched a new data offer specifically for businesses to cater to the growing demand for connectivity and data across Qatar’s business sector.
Qatar’s telecommunications sector has contributed 1.7% to Qatar’s GDP in the last financial year, up from 1.3% in 2014, the Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) said in an assessment report on Wednesday.
A life-saving drone project developed by a Qatari startup aims to revolutionise emergency and rescue operations, specifically near coastal areas around Qatar, using state-of-the-art connectivity solutions from Ooredoo.
Ooredoo “will retire” its 10Mbps ‘Wireless Home Broadband with Landline’ service from March 5 as part of efforts to enhance “Supernet experience” of its customers, the telecommunications company said.
The Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) on Wednesday opened the doors of the Ooredoo Cancer Awareness Centre, a first of its kind in the Middle East, for training and education about the disease.
