Ooredoo, the region’s leading enabler of digital business innovation, has enhanced its VSAT Internet service for remote connectivity, with new packages featuring higher capacities and reduced cost.
Ooredoo’s VSAT Internet service enables organisations – especially in the oil and gas, transport and logistics, and emergency services industry sectors – to stay connected via reliable and fast satellite broadband services with download speeds of 50Mbps, the company has said in a press statement.
VSAT Internet provides fully secured Internet connectivity using the innovative Ka Band VSAT technology. Ka Band uses small spot beams enabling frequency re-use and higher throughput.
Yousuf Abdulla al-Kubaisi, chief operating officer at Ooredoo Qatar, said: “As Qatar’s economy continues to grow and develop, companies in many industries, including oil and gas, transport and logistics, and emergency services require secure, reliable, and fast Internet services in remote locations.
“Our enhanced VSAT Internet provides Qatar’s organisations with the highest-quality Internet services that they need to grow their operations and cater to their customers effectively.”
VSAT Internet supports a broad range of applications, including point-of-sales transactions, data processing, reservation systems, business continuity and highspeed Internet access. Ooredoo has replaced its previous offerings with two new packs – Base Pack and Unlimited Pack – which offer faster services at a 40% discount compared to the old packages.
Both packs provide download speeds of 50Mbps and upload speeds of 10Mbps, compared to 30Mbps and 6Mbps, respectively, under the old packages.
VSAT Internet offers a flexible connectivity model and cost structure with an always-on Command Control Centre for constant monitoring, the statement noted.
Business customers “can leverage the Ooredoo Advantage, making Ooredoo ‘Best for Business’’, thanks to its breadth and depth of talent, best fixed and mobile networks, broadest portfolio of ICT services and solutions, and for being a trusted partner for 60 years”, it added.
