Ooredoo Oman has announced that its 5G ‘Home Internet’ service has been expanded to selected areas of Muscat, Al Batinah, Al Wusta, Ash Sharqiyah, Ad Dakhliyah, Ad Dhahriah and Dhofar. The network was launched in May 2020 in Muscat, Barka, Sohar, Salalah, Al Buraimi and Nizwa, offering maximum download speeds of 100Mbps. Ooredoo said it plans to construct and install ‘many more’ 5G stations across the Sultanate over the next five years.
‘Consumers in Oman are always hungry for the latest technologies that will enrich their digital lives and 5G is designed to do exactly that,’ commented Feras bin Abdullah Al Sheikh, Director of Branding and Communications at Ooredoo, adding: ‘More than just enhancing gaming, video, downloading and streaming, it will open the door to so much more. It’s our aim to help as many people as possible enjoy the internet and we are continually working on expanding our network to ensure that happens, while placing Oman firmly in the global race towards digital innovation.’
