The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA), in accordance with current regulations, has urged landlords to give consent to service providers for access to their properties for deployment of their fibre optic networks. 
This comes in line with CRA’s aim and efforts to encourage customer choice and to improve quality of service in the fixed-line market in Qatar, the authority has said in a statement.
The landlords’ consent form is included in the Reference Infrastructure Access Offer. The landlords’ consent enable service providers to reach the customers with their fixed fibre networks and to enhance their mobile services.
“The landlords’ consent will further support CRA’s efforts to encourage sustainable competition in the fixed-line telecommunications market in Qatar. The service providers will be enabled to provide innovative and competitive services, which will benefit consumers and contribute to the development of the information and communications technology sector and in the development of the country’s infrastructure,” said Mohamed Ali al-Mannai, president of CRA.
During fibre deployment, service providers work with professional contractors to carry out the work inside the landlords’ properties. “The probability of damages during the work is very limited. In any case in the unfortunate event of damages provoked by the contractors, service providers are liable for the damages and responsible for compensating the affected landlord,” the statement added.
