5G launched in Oman

Merge 104.8  |  12 December 2019

Oman’s 5G network has been officially switched on by national operator Omantel. With it the company says it’s  customers can now get very high-speed Internet services at their homes with speeds up to 1Gbps which they say will be better for streaming and gaming. Other operators are also working on rolling out similar services.

The announcement was made at the special ‘5G Roadmap’ event organised by TRA, which discussed the planned rollout, legislative developments as well as the readiness of operators to launch the super-speed network commercially. Ooredoo too has been preparing for the transition to 5G since 2017, rolling out operational trials, demonstrations, and experience zones at stores in Muscat and Salalah.
