History[edit]

The company was established in 1998, after the Ministry of Communications made it possible for private companies to provide data communication services. Batelco and National Bank of Kuwait are shareholders. QualityNet achieved ISO 9001:2000 certification.[when?]

The company's backbone network is based on a fiber optic medium with a centralized ATM switch and access nodes to provide coverage in Kuwait. The access to the backbone network is primarily through Frame Relay, ADSL and ISDN networks. Teleglobe and EMIX are used for international connectivity.
