#Qtel plans on changing its brand with new name and a new logo.
فخور وسعيد بلقائي صباح اليوم مع رئيس مجلس إدارة كيوتل الشيخ عبدالله آل ثاني حول هوية كيوتل الجديدة والتي ستدشن بيوم ٢٥فبراير القادم
Responding to an inquiry from Doha News, Qtel spokeswoman Fatima Al-Kuwari confirmed that a company announcement would take place at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Feb. 25, but did not go into specifics.
Those who convened for a meeting with chairman Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed Al-Thani today, including journalists from Arabic-language media, said they did not know what the new logo looked like. But they added that it would reflect a more “global” and “dynamic” identity, as the company has some 90 million subscribers across the Middle East and Asia.
