Voda­fone Qatar strug­gles to fix large-scale tele­com out­age

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

One of Qatar’s two telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pa­nies is strug­gling to bring its net­work on­line fol­low­ing a wide­spread out­age. Voda­fone Qatar said yes­ter­day on Twit­ter that net­work en­gi­neers have ar­rived in the tiny Gulf coun­try to fix the out­age that be­gan on Mon­day. It says that “all hands are on deck” to fix the prob­lem. Voda­fone com­petes against Oore­doo, for­merly known as Qtel. Both com­pa­nies are partly owned by gov­ern­ment-linked en­ti­ties. The out­age hap­pened as Qatar re­mains locked in a dis­pute with four other Arab coun­tries that have cut diplo­matic ties and sev­ered air, land and sea links. They have threat­ened to in­ten­sify their iso­la­tion of Qatar if it does not give in to their de­mands.
