Omani telco Nawras has launched fixed voice and data services for business customers in Oman, giving incumbent operator Omantel its first taste of fixed competition.

The new services include broadband data and voice services suitable for all sizes of business.

Nawras said it hopes to differentiate its service though professional account management and "dependable after sales support."

Khalid Al-Mahmoud, Nawras' chief operating officer, said that the fixed services include new initiatives including non-geographical numbering, which allows businesses to keep the same fixed numbers after relocating.

Nawras is also offering SIP trunks, giving customers access to more voice channels than currently being offered through legacy systems. 

Ross Cormack, CEO, Nawras, said earlier this month that Nawras plans to invest 150 million Omani rials ($390 million) in the next two years to expand fixed line services. He also confirmed that the company was on track to launch fixed services for consumers in the second half of 2010.
