The internet has become so important and necessary nowadays that it has become almost a basic need for many people across the world. Some people work through the internet, others like to use the internet to stay updated with the latest things going around the world while others use the internet for entertainment purposes, but whatever the reason may be, it is becoming almost necessary for many people to stay connected to the internet all the time.

Access to the internet means that you can stay connected with your friends and loved ones all the time, share information from anywhere in the world and if required, then also work remotely from anywhere in the world. 

So, if you are visiting Qatar then you must have a question in your mind: how will I stay connected while in Qatar? Well, you shouldn't worry about this because Qatar is a well-developed country and is one of the top richest countries in the world. You can get stay connected to the internet all the time while you are in Qatar in these two simple ways: 

Using a Prepaid SIM Card

The first choice that you have is to use a prepaid SIM card. In Qatar, you basically have two options or choices for network providers; Ooredoo and Vodafone. Unlike other countries where you get multiple network providers, Qatar has only two but these two are more than enough. You can spend on data, calls, and text without any hassle.

For anyone who is visiting Qatar for the first time or for a short time then choosing a prepaid SIM card is the best and easiest option available. You can easily purchase a SIM from either of these two network providers at the Hamad International Airport and if you forget to buy one at the airport then worry not, you will find many Ooredoo and Vodafone branches throughout the country in different malls, stores, and even in neighborhood stores, so it's not an issue. 

Depending on the package and benefits that your SIM card comes with, you can buy a SIM card starting from as low as QR 10. You will find each SIM card preloaded with a particular package that will suit your needs. Whether you are looking for data only or minutes & SMS, you will get these in the same or separate packages. 

If you are visiting Qatar for a period of 7 days or less then you can also try the Ooredoo Fan SIM/Visitor SIM for QR 35 which is almost equivalent to $10. This includes 1 GB data along with 25 local calls minutes and 15 international calls minutes with a validity period of 7 days. 

If you have got a wireless travel router available then you should also try to see if you can get any data SIM that you can use in your travel router since it will give you better coverage without affecting the battery life of your mobile phone, which is also a big problem. 

Using Free Wireless Networks

If you don't like the option of using or buying a prepaid SIM card then you can use the free WiFi networks all over the place. As soon as you land at Hamad International Airport, you will be able to connect to a free WiFi network and use the internet. Qatar Airways offer free Wi-Fi service on several international routes such as from Singapore and Bangkok. Although not very cheap, Unitedwifi plans are market competitive. 

This is a good thing about Qatar that you can find free WiFi networks for almost everything. Wherever you go, whether you are going to a hotel, a mall, a restaurant, or a hotel, you will find free WiFi networks that you can use to access the internet. Even in some parks, you will find hotspots networks that will allow you to access the internet for free.

We would recommend that you use both of these options. When you land at the Airport then you should buy yourself a prepaid SIM card that you can use to access the internet where there is no free WiFi network nearby. In most areas and public places, you won't have any sort of trouble finding a free wireless network but in case you don't find one, you should have a backup available in the form of a prepaid SIM card so that you constantly stay in touch with the internet.
