Ooredoo wins wholesale carrier award
Doha, December 2, 2013
Ooredoo, the leading telecom company in Qatar, has won the “Best Middle Eastern Wholesale Carrier” award at the recent Global Carrier Awards held in Amsterdam.
The success represents an important milestone for Ooredoo Qatar, which only launched wholesale operations – providing network products and services to other operators – in 2010. In three years, the company has grown to provide a world-class network that serves as a global exchange for global data, internet, voice and roaming traffic from East Asia to Europe and the US.
Ooredoo has built a thriving and fast-growing wholesale business in Qatar, offering the largest Internet peering network in the Middle East and is interconnected with more than 100 operators, including many of the largest in the world.
Yousuf Abdulla Al-Kubaisi, chief wholesale and international officer, Ooredoo, said: “This award is an important moment in the history of our company, and full credit is due to the whole team who made this possible. Our emergence as a major provider of wholesale services has added significant value to Ooredoo, as well as helping to grow Qatar’s knowledge-based economy.”
With more than 150 entrants and a structured scoring regime designed to ensure maximum objectivity, the Global Carrier Award, now in its eighth year, provides an important benchmark to showcase Ooredoo’s progress against other regional and international carriers. – TradeArabia News Service
