Qatar’s first-ever Broadband Plan represents the country’s commitment to becoming a leading knowledge-based economy by providing high quality, high-speed, affordable broadband services that are essential to future innovation and socio-economic development. The plan outlines a 10-year agenda with four ambitious targets to be achieved by 2016:  all residents of Qatar will have the ability to choose between a minimum of two broadband retail providers, whether they live in the largest city or the tiniest, most far-flung rural community; 95 percent of households will have the ability to access affordable and high-quality broadband service of at least 100 Mbps for downloads and 50 Mbps for uploads; all businesses, schools, hospitals, and government institutions will have high-quality access to at least 1 Gbps effective symmetrical speeds; and digital literacy will be expanded to all of the mainstream population, in conjunction with guarantees of users’ digital privacy, protection of personal data and freedom of opinion and expression.
