ooredoo1Ooredoo Qatar and Nokia Networks today announced the launch of LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) three-band carrier aggregation technology on the Ooredoo Supernet. Nokia technology enables the operator to provide higher data speeds of up to 375 Mbps to its customers.
The higher speeds are already available in several high-traffic areas of Doha, including West Bay, the Corniche and Katara Cultural Village. With this new technology, people using Category 9 (CAT 9)-capable handsets can benefit from data intensive services, including ultra high-definition video download, and upcoming trends, including virtual reality.
Waleed Al Sayed, Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “We’re aiming to further improve the broadband experience for our customers with faster data speeds and an excellent network performance. Nokia Networks is helping us to meet these goals and we look forward to deploying the latest technical achievements as we continue to enhance our world-class network.” This investment has been designed as part of Ooredoo’s ongoing Supernet investment to provide the best possible Internet experience for customers, with higher speeds and superior performance on all 3G, 4G and 4G+ devices.
Ooredoo and Nokia Networks have a long history of working together, and the companies recently announced they will partner to deploy small cells in popular network hotspots across the country to enhance Ooredoo’s 3G and 4G network.
