This step forms part of Omantel strategy to provide its customers with the best broadband experience through the broadest choice, widest coverage, superior quality and now even better with enhanced speeds which also supports the Government plans to transform the Sultanate into a knowledge-based society.

Customers with the Home Broadband plans have already been upgraded to the new speeds based on their individual subscriptions as outlined in the table below. Commenting on this enhancement, Haitham Abdullah Al Kharousi Vice President of Consumer Business Unit at Omantel said “Our strategy at Omantel has always been focused on providing our customers with the best overall broadband experience. As we have invested massively in expanding our fixed network and bringing its reach closer to more customers throughout the Sultanate, we are now able to pass the benefits to our customers by enhancing speeds. With this change, more than 90% of our customers have benefitted from doubling download speeds. In addition, upload speeds have been upgraded to 1 Mbps”.

“The network investments we made through the build out of FTTH networks and rolling out more MSANs “neighborhood exchanges” have also enabled Omantel to provide Home Broadband speeds up to 60 Mbps. As part of Omantel efforts to cater for the different needs of our customers, we are also introducing a new package of 35 Mbps for R.O 55/=”. Customers in Starter, Standard and 2 Mbps plans will now see their speeds reaching 4Mbps.
