Most good things in life need time, patience, and hard work! The long anticipation makes the final result taste like a sweet victory. We started this year with a totally new design for Ooredoo’s website, even the mobile app in the past few days, and now its Community’s turn!
The new design is a big step forward in its visual and technical experience. It stems from our desire to integrate the Community with the Ooredoo website and have a closer experience between them both.
Here are some of the new features:
Ooredoo website’s header and footer are now implemented on Community.
The design is a totally responsive one making your experience very smooth and fast regardless of the device you’re accessing it from.
What is responsive? Check out this article…
We have new set of avatars that are very modern and artistic, however, you can always upload your own.
You will find changes in the topic structure, which was created based on the current volume of topics. For example, if there were a lot of topics about Pokemon then we made a separate category for Pokemon!
We also merged some topics that we thought make your navigation better.
We are visual creatures; the new design has a photo dock in the main page that fetches the latest photos uploaded to Community.
Want more? We have a final surprise of a new add on feature that would personalize your experience on Community based on your interest and Klout score hint hint!
You will be able to see, play with, and experience the new design on Monday.
Expect the upcoming period to have some changes in the design and experience just to polish things up. Please share with us your comments and feedback and I hope you’re as excited for the updates as much as we are! :smileyvery-happy:

In our next GIANT leap into future-proofing our network for you, we’re proud to announce the launch of our new 1Gbps Fibre plan!
The new 1Gbps plan is the fastest in Qatar, and will enable you to download a 30 minute 4K quality movie in 3 minutes, and 2 hour HD movie in 2 minutes!
This milestone puts us as one of only 10 countries in the whole world with 1Gbps Fibre!
Best of all, with our new Supernet super-speeds whole households can expect to see a smoother and faster experience, as the speed will enable more people to enjoy being connected to the Internet at the same time.
To celebrate the launch, if you upgrade your current Fibre plan to the new revolutionary 1Gbps plan you’ll get two months at no extra charge, before you start to pay the standard monthly price of QR 1,900.
Please note: while only compatible devices will be able to access speeds of up to 1Gbps, customers using the 1Gbps plan will be able to deploy more devices to their full potential in their homes.
Check how to measure your Fibre speeds correctly at ooredoo.qa/portal/OoredooQatar/fibre-faq.
Things to keep in mind:
Location and device used could affect the speed you're experincing, for example.
With Macbook Pro laptop, the best speed test result you can get is 938Mbps - 940Mbps (94%) . Further investigation has concluded that this is the Max data throughput which any Laptop/PC can have with 1Gbps Ethernet port..
There is 6% protocol overhead, which are used to establish the communication between the two end points (server and PC client) .

1Gbps is 1,000Mbps, or 1000 Megabits per second, which is super super fast, but how fast? (in simpler words)
An average download duration with this kind of speed:
MP3 file — 3MB, less than 1 second
TV episode — 350MB, 3 seconds
720p High Definition TV episode — 950MB, 8 seconds
Blu-Ray Movie — 15GB, 2 minutes
Now to be clear, that's 1000 Megabits (Mb) not Megabytes (MB). We are usually more familiar with MB as that's commonly used to measure file sizes.
Whether something is in “MB” or “Mb” makes a lot of difference. In other words:
8Mb is approximately 1MB.
Or 8Mbps is about 1MB/s.
Or 1,000Mbps is about 125MB/s.
