Omantel expands its broadband coverage with the addition of 14,000 lines
Oman's main telecom company, Omantel, has expanded its broadband coverage in the country with the addition of 14,000 new lines, in the first phase of an expansion to its ADSL network.
The development will allow Omantel to extend broadband services to several more provinces of the Sultanate. The first phase of the expansion covers the exchanges of Ghala, Al-Khuwair, Wattaya, Ruwi, Wadi Kabir, Seeb and Al-Khodh in Muscat. The second of the project will cover Nizwa, Salalah Buraimi, Ibri Sohar, and Barka.
Omantel's ADSL expansion will increase capacities in exchanges where Internet services are already available and will introduce the service for the first time in other exchanges. Omantel is also investing in its Internet technical support centre to support the initiative.
"Through the capacity expansion, Omantel will provide diversified high quality telecommunications services in several areas in the Sultanate in order to satisfy the needs of individuals and enterprises in both public and private sectors," said Saleh bin Abdullah Al Farsi, Omantel's division head of marketing and customer service sector.
"We would introduce the best high quality services to residents and expatriates and keep pace with recent advances in telecommunications sector."
