Ooredoo Oman has introduced four new ‘Superfast Fibre’ plans as part of its suite of ‘Home Broadband’ fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services. The basic fibre-optic plan provides download speeds of 15Mbps and 250 minutes of voice calls to fixed numbers, while the premium subscription comes with unlimited data allowance and maximum download speeds of 100Mbps – up to 25 times faster than the company’s current Home Broadband packages. Further, Ooredoo has completed the first phase of its national fibre-optic rollout project, covering 11,000 homes in Mabella. Phase two will add an additional 20,000 homes in Al Khoudh at the beginning of September, while the service is expected to gradually expand to the majority of the Muscat Governate, Salalah, Sohar and Duqm areas.
Ooredoo CEO Greg Young commented: ‘This life-changing technology is the most powerful domestic connection that the Sultanate has ever seen, and by introducing Superfast Fibre Home Broadband services as an addition to our popular wireless Home Broadband services, we are delivering a whole new online experience for local communities.’
