Nawras expands 3G+ carrier service
Muscat, May 13, 2014
Nawras, the leading telecom operator in Oman and an Ooredoo company, recently launched its third 3G+ carrier services on the 900MHz band across several cities countrywide.
As part of its turbocharging programme, Nawras has modernised base stations in the cities of Buraimi, Dhank, Yanqul, Ibri, Rustaq and Nakhal, to provide customers with an even faster mobile broadband service.
Customers now have significantly improved indoor coverage, faster data download speeds, and an overall enhanced online experience, whether at home, in the office, at college, or out shopping.
The programme, which started in Muscat in 2012, has seen the successful roll-out of enhanced services across the Muscat Governate, then the Batinah coastline and now across a number of cities country-wide.
Sultan Al-Wahaibi, Nawras Network Implementation and Infrastructure director, said: “Being the only telecom service provider in Oman to provide 3G+ services on 900MHz, has allowed us to rapidly expand this fantastic service, to cover over 80 per cent of the population.
“This is another even bigger step forward in providing a better experience to our customers, which has already been completed across more than 50 per cent of our network. Browsing the internet, video streaming, downloads and online gaming are all much faster and easier than ever.”
More than 60 per cent of Nawras’ network in Salalah and areas from Mirbat to Mughsayl has already been modernised to house the latest telecoms equipment, a statement said.
Work is now underway to provide 3G+ services in the area, prior to the Salalah Festival this year, where both Nawras customers and visitors to Salalah will have access to a great mobile broadband experience. At the same time, the Nawras superfast 4G mobile broadband service is being expanded across the city of Salalah to provide an exclusive online experience to Nawras customers, during the 2014 Festival. – TradeArabia News Service
