Transcript

  • 1. QITCOM 2011Vodafone Qatar
    Super-fastbroadbandfor Qatar
  • 2. Who areVodafone Qatar?
    >Vodafone and Qatar Foundation (VQF) is the company formed by Vodafone Group and the Qatar Foundation – VQF owns 45 percent of Vodafone Qatar
    > Listed on the Doha Exchange
    > Mobile license in June 2008; Fixed license in April 2010
    >757,000 mobile customers = 26.7% market share
  • 3. International experience in Fixed
    >5th largest provider of fixed broadband in Europe
    >5.4 million customers across 9 countries
    >Fixed businesses outside Europe in Turkey, Egypt, New Zealand, Ghana and Qatar.
  • 4. Fibre initiatives we’re involved in
    MOU signed with TI and other players for Italian fibre NGN to cover 50% population. Ongoing negotiations on business plan, governance model, size of TI self-build carve-out and access conditions.
    QNBN company formed and work underway for FTTH roll-out.
    Vodafone Portugal and Optimus have granted reciprocal access to their FTTH networks covering 200K households each. Customer access/migration has begun.
    Vodafone / Telecom have won fibre-wireless tender for Govt. NZ$285m Rural Broadband Initiative.
    Vodafone heavily involved in NBN Co proposals (POI etc…) as potential access seeker. Bill has passed Parliament for A$43 bn roll-out (93% population by FTTH, 7% wireless and satellite).

    The time is right for QNBN
    Qatar has the opportunity to leapfrog a generation of copper access regulation – which has not created sustainable competition. Altnets generate 5% FCF and virtually all of this is through cable networks.
  • 6. Open architecture drives competition
    WIK Consult’s recent modeling of different fibre architectures and wholesale models showed that:
    Networks that can be unbundled are superior to bitstream-only GPON in terms of consumer surplus and welfare
    P2P fibre and GPON over P2P showed greatest levels of consumer surplus and total welfare – QNBN design allows for both
  • 7.
  • 8. Open architecture from the beginning
    > As there is currently limited FTTH rollout the QNBN project will mean that all fibre deployed in Qatar can be open.
    > Any legacy fibre not to QNBN standards will be upgraded or overbuilt.
    > The standardised approach will benefit all providers and give certainty to developers.
    > The QNBN also ensures a level playing field with access seekers purchasing access from QNBN on an equivalent basis.
  • 9. A bold step towards the 2030 Vision
    Actively leverage ICT to support the realization of Qatar’s overall national development goals and position Qatar as a leading knowledge economy enabled by ICT by 2015.
