Vodafone Qatar has been awarded the second fixed line licence by the Qatar telecoms regulator, a company announcement said.

The award of the licence, by the Supreme Council of Information and Communication Technology (ictQATAR), is subject to the change in the company’s articles of association which will be recommended to be approved at an extraordinary general meeting (EGM).

Commenting on the licence award, Vodafone Qatar CEO Grahame Maher said: “Vodafone is delighted as this will strengthen our ability to make a world of difference for all the people in Qatar. The combined strengths provided by the mobile and fixed services will allow us to deliver total communications services to our customers, whilst delivering value to our customers and shareholders.”

Previously, a separate company, the Vodafone and Qatar Foundation Consortium, was announced as the winning applicant of the second fixed licence by ictQATAR in September 2008.

Further details including the date and location for the EGM will be announced in due course.
