    The Government has set up the QNBN to help achieve this vision
    Description
    Business model
    • QNBN will lease passive fibreinfrastructure for telecom services
    • Appropriate national wholesale prices will be set to
    • Ensure low retail rates across Qatar
    • Give margin to operators
    • make QNBN self-sufficientin the long-run
    Network roll out
    • 95% FTTHcoverage nationwide using a combination of P2P and GPON technologies
    • Provide wholesale access and core fibreacross Qatar
    • Rollout network in greenfield areas in cooperation with developers and lease existing ductswherever available
    Company set-up
    • Qatari government to own 100%of QNBN entity to start but option for operators to join the company
    • Sufficient funding from the Governmentin the form of both equity and subsidy
    • 100+FTEs once fully operational
  • 9
    High-level objectives of the QNBN have been defined and approved by the ictQatar Board
    Key objectives for the QNBN
    High-speed
    • Infrastructure that supports 100 mpbs and beyond for in-country active connections
    Nationwide
    • Available nationwide to achieve greater social inclusion
    • Reuse existing infrastructure where needed to avoid duplication
    Open
    • Provides infrastructure access to operators in a fair and equal manner
    Rapidly deployed
    • Coverage target achieved by 2015, driving national competitiveness and acting as catalyst for the broader economy
    Affordable
    • Affordable services to all segments of society and offers competitive retail and wholesale prices
  • 10
    QNBN will only offer services in the passive layer to encourage innovation in the active and service layers
    Q.NBN Infrastructure Tier Focus
    • Retail operators compete based on separate services and applications
    • Operators will also compete based on active infrastructure to avoid limiting operators’ flexibility with technology choice
    Services and
    Applications
    Active
    Layer
    • QNBN focuses on passive deployment only to de-bottleneck the most costly and challenging to upgrade layer
    • Focus on passive removes possibility to create a monopoly in retail services
    Passive
    Layer
  • 11
    QNBN will leverage existing infrastructure while speeding up roll-outin new areas
    QNBN plan
    Existing areas with good infrastructure
    • QNBN will lease ducts accessand take responsibility for rolling out and maintaing fibre infrastructure
    • Fibre access is then leased on wholesale basis
    Nationwide coverage will be vital to offer a sustainably reasonable wholesale access price across the country
    Existing areas requiring upgrade
    • QNBN will roll-out infrastructurein collaboration with government entities (e.g., Ashgal)
    • QNBN will invest in new or additional fibreto upgrade areas where fibre does not meet required standards
    Greenfield areas
    • QNBN will invest and rollout fibre in cooperation with developers, ensuring developments are fibre-ready when complete
  • 12
    Substantial progress has been made to set-up the QNBN
    Business case and model designed
    Company set-up well under way
    Already engaging operators and developers
    • Various scenarios have been examined to understand
    • Possible range of wholesale prices
    • Subsidy required
    • Total investment costs
    • Business plan for QNBN developed
    • QNBN funding approved
    • Company registered and initial governance struc-ture (board of directors) in place
    • Initial working crew set up and running
    • Applied for wholesale license from ictQATAR
    • Engaging operators to discuss
    • Sharing of fibre both access and backbone infrastructure
    • Last-mile duct access
    • Discussions with major developers to deploy fibre in greenfield areas
