Qtel and Tata fortify partnership
Top level executives from Qtel and Tata have met to discuss existing and future projects in the country
Qtel and Tata Communications executives have held top-level meetings to discuss existing and prospective projects at Doha recently.
Qtel's CEO Sheikh Saud bin Nasser Al-Thani and Tata's CEO Vinod Kumar led the discussions. The meeting was also attended by executives from Qtel Qatar including Waleed Al Sayed COO, Yousuf Al Kubaisi, chief wholesale and International officer and Ahmed Al-Derbesti, Group COO.
Tata Communications owns and operates the world's only wholly owned subsea cable ring around the world, and most recently launched Tata Global Network (TGN) Gulf cable system. Qtel's role in this project has grown ever since the landing of the high-capacity submarine fibre optic cable at the Al-Kheesa Landing Station in Doha, in March.
The TGN-cable allows for Qtel to serve an ever growing customer base for voice and data services in the country. It covers nearly 20% of the world's internet routes, reaching 240 countries with speeds of up to 10G.
Sheikh Saud Bin Nasser Al-Thani, CEO, Qtel Qatar, said: "Qtel continues to support Qatar's long-term strategy to transform itself into a world-class hub for ICT, and our partnerships with leading companies like Tata Communications are a key part of that strategy."
"Qtel's vision and culture of innovation makes it an ideal partner for Tata Communications as we continue on our journey to better connect emerging global markets," said Vinod Kumar, CEO, Tata Communications.
