The rollout will enable thousands of residents in these areas to benefit from high-speed fibre optic technology at competitive prices, giving customers great value while making online gaming, video streaming and downloading more affordable for all segments of society.
Customers can experience the service for free in the first month, and will also receive a free Wi-Fi router. In addition, existing ADSL customers can retain their fixed line numbers even if they upgrade to fibre optics.
Omantel is the only operator in Oman that offers triple play services via fibre optics. These services enable users to experience high speed Internet, including home Internet services at speeds of up to 200 mbps. This is especially useful when combined with Omantel’s TV + service and Smart Home System which operate through the brand’s Internet services.
