The campaign demonstrates that the Vodafone network is at its strongest, biggest and fastest point in the company’s history, in order to better support both consumers and businesses.

Since 2018, Vodafone Qatar has poured more than QR1bn worth of investment into its advanced network. During that time, the number of Vodafone outdoor and indoor mobile sites in Qatar has increased by over 35%.

Users can access the network in more areas of the country than ever before with a higher quality of connections for data and voice, and while data traffic has increased by 5X, Vodafone customers are experiencing 300% faster data speeds.

Vodafone has also been continuing the roll out of its extensive fibre infrastructure. Connections to this service have doubled for homes and business in a number of areas, including those in The Pearl, Lusail City, Msheireb Downtown Doha, Gharaffa, Abou Hamour, West Bay, Wukair, Industrial area, Al Sadd and Al Waab.

Commenting on the campaign, Vodafone Qatar Chief Executive Officer, Sheikh Hamad Bin Abdullah Al Thani, said: “We are not the network we were when we launched over ten years ago, and we are not the network we will be tomorrow.

"We never settle and we consistently challenge ourselves to be better, which is what our customers deserve. The more we achieve, the more we invest.

"We’re proud that our network is bigger, faster and stronger than ever before, and we have a clear commitment to building a state-of-the-art communications infrastructure that serves our country’s digital requirements and leads digital innovation in Qatar.”
