Oman Telecommunications Company (Omantel), the Sultanate’s incumbent telecoms operator, has already installed over 100 5G sites in the Sultanate and plans to increase the total to 2,226 by 2024. Baha Allawati, vice president of Omantel’s Enterprise business, told The National that the deployment forms part of an agreement with the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), which unveiled its 5G roadmap last year.

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, Omantel announced the commercial launch of 5G services for residential broadband customers in December 2019. The network, which supports maximum download speeds of 1Gbps, is available in a number of main towns and cities, including Muscat, Barka, Sohar, Rustaq and Saham.
