Qtel and Nepal Telecom sign agreement

Qtel and Nepal Telecom have launched yesterday a new Multi-Service Point of Presence (PoP) for Nepal Telecom.

Senior executives from Qtel and Nepal Telecom signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for launching of the new hub at a special ceremony at the Qtel headquarters here.

The new Multi-service PoP in Doha links Nepal Telecom network to Qtel’s world-class voice and global Internet network, ensuring a better and faster connection for customers in Qatar and the wider GCC region when they connect to Nepal.

This telecommunication hub ensures better voice quality on calls to and from Nepal. It also assists in meeting the business connectivity requirements for local and global customers in expert service companies and leading industries, including airlines, banking, financial markets, oil and gas, logistics management and construction businesses.

From Qtel’s perspective, Nepal Telecom is the 12th global operator to place a PoP in Qatar, clearly indicating that more and more global communications companies consider Qatar as one of the top choices for positioning telecommunications hub infrastructure.

From Nepal Telecom’s perspective, the new hub in Qatar is its second global presence after its first PoP in Singapore, reflecting its growing international business, and its relentless efforts to provide faster, easier and affordable connections for the expansion of its global voice and data business.

As the first Multi-Service PoP in the region, this hub is a part of recent development efforts to provide better and dependable options of communication for the Nepalese nationals working in Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and their families and friends back home.

With commercial links continuing to develop between Nepal and Qatar, this PoP is a step forward to provide economic and social benefits to the nationals of both the friendly countries.
