International Mobile Roaming (IMR) across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region

Document Type Consultation

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Ministers have called for a review of the prices applied to  International Mobile Roaming (IMR) services in the region. A price cap was introduced at the retail and wholesale level on voice calls made within the visited country (local calls), and on calls made to other GCC member states (international calls), including the home country. This price regulation took full effect as of February 1, 2012.

This current consultation aims to review other IMR services (including data, SMS, MMS and video calls) to determine whether further regulation is needed.

 

All stakeholders in Qatar are requested to respond to this consultation.  Responses should be sent to raconsultations@ict.gov.qa   by or before November 6, 2014.
