Omantel launched its 5G services in Oman

Omantel is the first mobile network operator in the Sultanate of Oman to offer 5G mobile network services to its customers.

5G services were available as a fixed wireless access across Oman’s telcos. Omantel subscribers will now be able to enjoy the next generation mobile network services.

“Needless to say 5G is the latest communications technology that provides high-speed Internet connection with low latency than any previous technology. Today’s launch of 5G for mobile is yet another remarkable achievement by Omantel. It is a testimony to the company’s service quality which has resulted in a steady growth in customer numbers,” said Talal Said Al Mamari, Chief Executive Officer of Omantel.

“We are proud to be the first telecom operator in the Sultanate to commercially launch the 5G network at the end of 2019. Today, we are pleased once again to be the first to launch 5G for mobile, which will open new horizons for the mobile telecommunications sector and will heavily contribute towards supporting growth and digital transformation efforts across different sectors, by facilitating the adoption of the Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies i.e. smart cities, the Internet of Things(IoT) and Artificial Intelligence,” he added.
