Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - Karachi At a major event in Qatar on Monday, Qtel (Qatar Telecom) has been rebranded as Ooredoo.

The launch of the new brand was celebrated by a spectacular multimedia and theatrical experience about the transformation into Ooredoo, representing the next step in the group’s evolution and celebrating the international achievements of one of Qatar’s leading companies.


Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed Bin Saud Al Thani, Chairman, Ooredoo, said: “We have always put our customers at the heart of our business, and this new name shows that we want to be closer to our customers and engage with them in everything that we do. We are proud that Qatar, where the business was born, is the first country in Ooredoo’s international network to integrate with the new global brand. We are not simply about making connections, we are about enriching and empowering the people of Qatar and helping them achieve their goals,” he said.


The celebration also featured a specially-branded film and theatrical performances. Concluding the ceremony, a large group of children holding red balloons entered the amphitheatre, with an amazing ballet performance.


Since first telephone exchange was installed in Qatar in 1949, the organisation has been a community-based Qatari company that provides life-enhancing communications products.
