Ooredoo completes 4G tests in Algeria
Ooredoo now offers 4G services in eight markets in the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia. This new network investment results in a better data experience for customers.
The prelaunch was conducted in Tlemcen Province in the northwestern part of Algeria. Ooredoo will roll out 4G service in all 48 provinces in the coming months.
Ooredoo Algeria conducted the trial phase with a preliminary licence from the Algeria Regulatory Authority for Post and Telecommunications. During the test, which was conducted with Nokia in presence of representatives from the Regulatory Authority, Ooredoo's network reached speeds of up to 75 Mbps - the fastest speed thus far in Algeria.
“Our launch of 4G in Algeria demonstrates Ooredoo’s commitment to investing in super fast networks across all our markets." Sheikh Saud Bin Nasser Al Thani, group CEO of Ooredoo, said. "We continue to offer our customers a better data experience, enabling them to enjoy faster downloads and clearer, buffer-free streaming, made possible by the latest network technology.”
After the official launch, customers will be able to access 4G speeds for the same price as the company's 3G services. Customers will benefit from faster streaming and upload speeds as well as clear-sounding phone calls.
Ooredoo also launched 4G services in Myanmar in May and in Tunisia in April.
