It is through Mentari that Indosat introduced the company’s rebranding of adding Ooredoo in its name and as the initial introduction of its GPRS service and video streaming.
Talking about the brand name, there is a slight change in their name where every product under Indosat is now followed by “Ooredoo”. The adjustment was due to a change in the company’s management, since a Qatar-based technology firm called Qtel has acquired 65 per cent of Indosat’s shares. For this reason, Qtel is allowed to make any changes to the company, including to modify the name.
However, instead of changing the product name entirely, Qtel only asked for an additional last name in Indosat and its products.
