Ooredoo upgrades 4G home broadband with Massive MIMO

13 Dec 2018

Ooredoo Oman has enhanced its LTE home broadband service with Massive MIMO technology. The firm has successfully upgraded 14 of its sites to expand network capacity and output in preparation for the rollout of 5G. As part of its ongoing expansion, Ooredoo plans to upgrade an additional 23 sites by the end of this year and ‘many more’ during 2019, mainly in Muscat, Al Batinah, Al Wusta, Sharqiya, Dahira and Dakhlia.

‘The introduction of Massive MIMO to our “supernet” is a major step towards 5G evolution. We are already starting to see huge growth in IoT and smart city initiatives. These innovative services and applications will depend heavily on the speed and capacity of next generation networks,’ commented Ahmed Al Abri, Acting CTO at Ooredoo, adding: ‘This upgrade is part of our promise to provide Home Broadband customers with higher speeds, uninterrupted streaming, faster downloads, faster gaming and sharing, and an overall superior digital experience. Keeping more people in more places connected, these improvements will mean that things like streaming HD videos will be lightning fast.’
