News Details

The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) has conducted a benchmarking study on the prices for retail telecom services in the State of Qatar compared to the averages in Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), with the aim of monitoring the state of the telecom market in the State of Qatar.

The study is based on the Arab Regulators Network of Telecommunications (AREGNET) study and the 5 OECD price baskets; fixed voice, fixed broadband, mobile voice and data, mobile broadband, and leased lines.

The study’s main findings are that prices for telecom services in the State of Qatar are typically below or on par with the GCC average, while typically above the OECD average. Also, it shows that since 2017 prices for fixed broadband and mobile voice and data services in the State of Qatar have decreased, while prices for fixed voice, mobile broadband, and leased lines services have largely remained static.
