Qtel to launch ‘888 USB Modem’ in Qatar; slashes device rates

Qtel under its ongoing 'Broadband Anywhere' initiative is all set to introduce a new USB modem into the Qatar market. The new network is considered the most advanced mobile broadband network in the region.

The Qtel 888 USB Modem will offer customers download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps and provide simple "plug-and-play" technology. The modem will provide its customer access to Internet through a network, which will cover all Doha region and virtually all inhabited regions across Qatar, meaning people can surf the web wherever they are.

The company claims that with introduction of high-tech USB device (Qtel's 888 modem) in the region, the people will now be able to surf and download heavy games, movies, music and applications on their laptop or pc.

Further, Qtel has decided to slash the prices of latest device by QR230, making it an extremely affordable QR549 (previously QR779).

Under the limited time offer, the company will offer modem with a choice of four personalized "skin" designs, and provide cool accessory pack, that includes a travel pouch, extension chord, laptop clip and neck lanyard.

Giving details regarding the plan, a company official has informed that Qtel's Mobile Broadband Unlimited price plan provides customers with a 'no limits' data bundle at QR 400 per month. However, there is a one-off QR100 connection fee for new customers.

Apart from Unlimited plan, the company will offer three bundles, through which customer will get a choice for their monthly budget and data download needs.

The Qtel 888 USB modem, which is treated as one of the most user-friendly devices available, will be available at Qtel shops, and participating Premium Dealer outlets across the region.
