The 5G network launched by Omantel, the first integrated telecom services provider in the Sultanate, was greatly welcomed by the telecommunications market.
By launching this technology, Omantel aspires to enter into a new era in the world of telecommunications and information technology.
Subscribers in various parts of Muscat, Al Batinah North and Al-Batinah South can now get massive speeds up to 1Gbps.
Commenting on the launch of the service, Omantel CEO Talal Said Al-Mamari expressed his happiness for the good turnout the first 5G network has witnessed in the Sultanate. He further noted that the provision of the commercial 5G service for home customers comes as part of Omantel's pioneering and vital role in supporting digital transformation in the Sultanate.
"The 5G network for home-based internet subscribers is the first step in our march towards achieving the maximum benefit from this technology which the world is expanding its uses. It is expected that the new technology will bring about radical changes to our lifestyles and business patterns. Therefore, this network will become an integral part of Omantel's integrated system. The 5G was designed to meet the demands of the 4th industrial revolution and will serve as a platform for the provision of greater and unprecedented services in such sectors as education, healthcare, transportation, and entertainment. This is in addition to the new technologies which are necessary for the establishment of important projects such as smart cities and e-government. These new technologies include, among other things, Internet of Things (IoT), remote monitoring of industrial systems, campus area network (CAN), and many more," Al Mamari added.
It should be noted that the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has announced its approval of Omantel's roadmap aimed at launching the 5G service which it aspires to provide to 2,226 locations in the Sultanate by 2024. The service will be made available following the requirements of commercial use and technological development of the network.
