State-owned incumbent telco Omantel has revealed plans to expand the reach and capacity of its high-speed broadband network to meet the rising demand for internet connections in the Gulf state. In addition, the operator intends to re-launch its dial-up internet with several ‘new and attractive features’ for the customer, according to company official Mohanned bin Dawood Al Asfoor. The moves, he said, are also a part of the company’s efforts to lend full support to the ongoing e-government project and nationwide ‘Digital Society’ campaign. No further details were given.
