23 Nov 2017

Ooredoo Oman, the country’s second largest mobile network operator (MNO) by subscribers, has expanded its 4G LTE network to 70 new locations. Areas that have recently been added to Ooredoo’s 4G footprint include parts of Muscat, Dhofar and Ad Dakhiliyah. The network upgrades have included the addition of 20 sites in Batinah, ten in Al Sharqiyah and ten in Muscat with the remainder ‘extending to every governorate of the Sultanate’. The firm, which is majority owned by Qatar’s Ooredoo Group, says the rollout is part of plans to increase LTE coverage to 90% of the Omani population by the first quarter of 2018.
