CRA: TELECOM PRICES IN QATAR LOWEST IN ARAB REGION

Prices of telecommunications services in Qatar are broadly lower than the rest of the GCC and Arab region, according to the findings of a recent study.

The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) stated that it participated in the Telecommunications Retail Price Benchmarking for Arab Countries study by AREGNET, which compares the prices of a range of telecoms services across the GCC, Arab and OECD (Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development) markets.

The survey shows that mobile voice prices in Qatar have fallen by 57% since 2008, which is in line with the rest of the region. For mobile broadband services, there have been significant changes in Qatar over the last five years mainly due to the upgrade from 3G services to faster and cheaper 4G services, the study reveals.
