­Qatar Telecom (Qtel) has signed a MVNO agreement with Richard Branson's Virgin Group offering prepaid services. The service offers a simple all-day tariff, sweeping away the confusion of peak and off-peak rates and also provides 180-day airtime - the longest-lasting mobile airtime validity in Qatar.

With this launch, Virgin Mobile Qatar will be the eighth Virgin Mobile branded operation in the world, following on from launches in the UK, Australia, USA, Canada, France, South Africa, and India.

Sir Richard Branson, Chairman and Founder of the Virgin Group of Companies, said: "Virgin Mobile is the fastest-growing and most successful business in Virgin's history, with more than fifteen million customers around the world. Virgin Mobile Qatar is an entirely new type of mobile experience, which everybody can start enjoying from today. I am proud to have partnered with Qtel to make Virgin Mobile Qatar our first mobile launch in the Middle East, and I would like to invite the people of Qatar to come on in and enjoy the fun. We're open!"
