Default Quick Telecoms Question Qatar

Are QTel the only provider of mobile services, or is there another?

Thanks

Do they still have only one, really bad radio station that interrupts music for prayers and features news stories about what colour pants the Emir has on today?

Yes , QBS radio is indeed still shite . No real news , no traffic news , no decent programming and no hope !

We had The Worzels followed by The Brotherhood Of Man then Boney M this morning .

You know you're going to have a shit day when' Brown Girl In The Ring' blasts through the speakers at 6.00am !

6.00 to 6.30 am is monotone readings and interpretations from the Quran. And if you are on the road listening to that at 6.00 am then you have been here too long.

Yes correct , i have been here too long . It's actually called ' The deeds and utterances of the Prophet Mohammed ( PBUH)' .

Then Bernie Lyons comes on at 6.30am !

Avoid Qtel like the plague, they are useless. I have just spent 2 hours of my life arguing about my QR3700 bill for roaming when I activated a Qtel passport which gives me 1G of download and 100 minutes of talking. Seems it didn't get set up but the wifes did.............

And there is a new british speaking radio channel, 91.7 equally as shite as QBS but at least you can turn the Worzels off and listen to Climie Fisher.

Which has the best coverage (this isn't for personal use)?

I understand that customer service is non existent btw.

(PS, it's your go).

I don't know about Vodafone but Qtel was wretched in my Villa in Al Waab (That doesn't really help) They are probably on a par but you will get a better deal with Vodafone.

(Just looking now, give me 5)

Qtel , i can't pick up much on Vodafone in Wakra or Mesieed but then again you're lucky if you see normal human activity in those two places .
