Ooredoo completes national fibre backbone across Oman

29 Sep 2015

Ooredoo Oman has announced the completion of its national fibre-optic backbone, which spans almost 5,500km, to provide high speed reliable connectivity to residential and businesses customers across the Sultanate. The company says it is able to offer a robust, cost-effective data highway, which connects all regions of Oman and complements its international submarine fibre-optic links and the ‘Superfast Fibre’ fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) service, as well as its range of solutions for connecting businesses.

‘This is not simply an upgrade to legacy technology, it is an entirely new and unparalleled network development,’ noted Ooredoo Oman’s CEO Greg Young, adding: ‘We are no longer dependent on using the fibre or transmission from other operators and can single-handedly ensure that we are able to avoid network outages or interruptions to service, which could impact the country significantly. Oman is no longer dependent on just a single fibre network and this will bring huge benefits to the country in terms of security, dependability and attractiveness to foreign investors, as well as government organisations and established businesses.’

Ooredoo says that its total investment in network modernisation has reached OMR124 million (USD320.9 million) and covers 99% of the population.
