Oman Mobile has announced the launch of its state-of-the-art 3.5G network, aimed at providing super-fast broadband in the country.
 
The network is undergoing extensive tests involving some of Oman's major corporations before being rolled out to customers, Dr Amer Al Rawas, managing director of Oman Mobile, said.

"Our teams have already finished extensive testing of the network, and I am extremely pleased with the results. Still, this is not enough," he revealed.

"We are now submitting our services to the toughest test panel imaginable: the Sultanate's major corporations. Selected clients will be enjoying super-fast mobile broadband, and we will use their feedback to fine-tune our network and services.

"Only after these most demanding clients confirm the excellence of our network then we will be prepared to go live."

He said pricing details of the new service would be revealed at a later stage but pledged that tariffs would be "competitive, simple and transparent".

Amer added: "As of today, we have extensive 3.5G coverage in Muscat Governorate, and our implementation teams are already working in each area of Oman."
