Vodafone Qatar has partnered with talabat to create an online shop for its services and products on talabat’s App, as part of its efforts to encourage people to stay in their homes and practice social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vodafone Qatar’s customers can now easily and securely purchase recharge cards and pay their bills through the talabat App using their credit cards or pay in cash upon home service delivery. Customers can also make use of the online shop to request Vodafone Qatar’s home internet product- GigaHome. Ideal for meeting the needs of families spending more time in the home, and for remote working and learning, Vodafone GigaHome covers homes of every size with high-speed Wi-Fi in every room using a state-of-the-art Giga Wi-Fi Hub powered by Vodafone Qatar’s GigaNet network. GigaHome-Fibre customers can also enjoy GigaTV, Vodafone’s home entertainment service.

Vodafone Qatar’s Chief Operating Officer, Diego Camberos, said: “Vodafone is doing all it can to make sure our customers can continue to make use of our communications products and services without having to leave the safety of their homes. People practicing social distancing can safely stay in touch with their loved ones and still be fully productive and positive while engaged in online learning and remote working.” talabat’s Managing Director, Francisco de Sousa, said: “We are delighted to expand our partnership with Vodafone Qatar to help them make sure their customers’ needs are met and to be of benefit to everyone in Qatar.”

Vodafone Qatar has been quick to introduce several measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes adding extra capacity to its fixed, broadband and mobile networks to cope with the increase in demand, increasing customers’ data allowances for free and disseminating health information to the public via its social media channels and SMS.
