Ooredoo has completed a significant network enhancement programme across popular campsites and desert areas in Qatar to enable customers to get the most out of camping season. Building on the success of its 2015 initiative, ‘Project Desert’, which installed mobile shelters in popular camping locations, Ooredoo has upgraded its network infrastructure in 2016 for a smoother online experience in desert areas.

As part of this process, Ooredoo has introduced the latest 4G+ technology supporting CAT9 in all camping locations, to provide enhanced coverage and data speeds. The company has also added new mobile sites in some of the most popular camping areas, including Sealine, Ghawaryah and Khor Al Udaid. Ooredoo was named as providing the “Best Operator Network” by Telecoms World Middle East in September 2016, and the company is continuing to expand its network enhancement programme to ensure that customers enjoy the best possible experience wherever they are in Qatar.

Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari, Director of Community & Public Relations, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “Ooredoo continues to upgrade our network to ensure we stay at the cutting-edge in terms of coverage and performance, and also in response to requests from our customers. People have told us that reliable data networks and crystal-clear voice coverage are a key part of their camping experience, so we’re continuing to upgrade the network to support the increasing number of visitors in Qatar’s desert areas.” With the best desert network experience, Ooredoo customers can stay connected while exploring and have the peace of mind of knowing that they can contact help in the event of an emergency.

Customers looking to take advantage of the Ooredoo Supernet network at popular camping sites can use an Ooredoo Broadband plan, Shahry or Hala Smart bundle or a Mi-Fi Netgear device to connect to the Internet 24/7.
