Omantel has announced that they have managed to drive 5G in Muscat, Al Batinah South and Al Batinah North.
We have successfully rolled out a large number of new 5G sites in the populated areas of Muscat, Al Batinah North and Al Batinah South governorates. These new sites will serve home internet and mobile internet alike, and users will get an optimum speed even at the edge of the coverage range.
We managed to ensure a fast and steady connection everywhere within the coverage range, even for mobile users, through smaller 5G cells that connect to the main tower.
5G is an integral part of Omantel’s ecosystem and we have the widest coverage of the network in Oman. We see 5G as the key enabler for Industry 4.0 technologies, like IoT, Cloud Computing, Big Data & Analytics, Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence, with its massive network capacity and ultra-low latency. Our role, at Omantel, is to lay the groundwork to help our partners in the public and private sectors to tap into the growing opportunities that arise as technology advances.
Due to demographic and geographic factors, 5G is the way forward to ensure a high-speed and low-latency internet connection in Al Batinah North and Al-Batinah South governorates and other locations where “fibre” is technically challenging and financially unviable. Therefore, we are keen on enhancing our 5G footprint in Al-Batinah and elsewhere to build on our main role of connecting the society within Oman and with the world to the utmost level.Aladdin Baitfadhil, Chief Commercial Officer, Omantel
