Nawras 'done roaming'

24 May 2005

The second GSM operator in Oman, Nawras, has announced that it has wrapped up an agreement with rival Oman Mobile to provide national roaming facilities. Nawras, a joint venture between Qatar’s Qtel, Denmark’s TDC and Omani partners, launched services in March this year and is committed to providing 96% coverage within five years. The roaming agreement follows a deal with Oman Mobile’s parent Omantel, under which Omantel will lease some capacity of its fibre-optic backbone network to Nawras for transmission.
