12 Dec 2005

Oman Telecommunications Company (Omantel) has signed an agreement with Pakistan’s Trans World Associates (TWA) to lay an international submarine cable from Seeb to Karachi. An Omantel spokesperson said: ‘In line with this agreement, Seeb landing station will be upgraded to a multiple link hub and a main station for Falcon, FLAG and TWA. It will elevate Omantel’s status as a regional multi-cable operator and will open up new business horizons in Oman and within the region.’ Work on the USD1.2 million project is scheduled to start in February 2006 under a 15-year deal between the two parties.
