Through its Wholesale Business Unit, Omantel serves local and international telecom operators by providing them with state-of-the-art telecom solutions in terms of interconnection, Internet access, connectivity, infrastructure, roaming, and more.
Omantel Wholesale Unit has undergone an extraordinary transformation journey over the last decade, from being a party dependent on other regional wholesale providers for fulfilling its own requirements to becoming a main wholesale provider serving telecom operators and content providers locally, regionally, and globally.
Instead of relying on individual projects, Omantel Wholesale introduced the ‘Global Wholesale Integration Program’, a comprehensive programme focused on various wholesale strategic pillars.
