Vodafone Qatar, which ended Ooredoo's domestic monopoly in Qatar five years ago, has announced that customer numbers rose by 22 percent over the past year.

The affiliate to the UK-based Vodafone Group said it was continuing to expand its mobile customer base in the Gulf state, and had reached 1,327,000 customers as of March 31.

"We are proud that more and more people are choosing to become Vodafone customers. To have 62 percent of the population using our services every month is a great achievement for our shareholders, staff and partners," said Vodafone Qatar's CEO Kyle Whitehill in a statement.

"This growth is the result of focusing on delivering unique products and services to our customers, as well as ensuring our customers are satisfied in their daily interactions with Vodafone," he added.

In January, Vodafone Qatar posted a profit of QR89m ($24.4 million) for the nine months to the end of last year, reversing losses in the year-earlier period.

Vodafone said it will report its financial results for the year ended March 31 following a board meeting on May 27.
