Nawras launches Oman’s first LTE home broadband

MUSCAT, September 3, 2014

Omani telecom operator Nawras has launched its new 4G/LTE Home Broadband services for prepaid and postpaid customers.

The LTE network aims at giving customers an online experience three times faster than 3G, for everything from surfing to movie downloads, music streaming and online gaming, said a statement.

The monthly plans come in a range of options for both set of customers, beginning with an entry level bundle offering 10GB for RO15 ($38.8), 25GB for RO19, 75GB for RO23 and 150GB for RO33, it said.

Feras Al Sheikh, director of consumer sales, said: “We are the first operator in Oman to offer LTE Home Broadband in the Sultanate and the only operator who is able to have customers up and running on high speed home broadband on the day that they subscribe. We believe customers should not have to wait for home broadband. Everything they need is in the box they leave a Nawras store with, so all customers have to do is plug in a start surfing.

“As of today, the Batinah coast and large parts of Muscat are covered with our LTE Home Broadband and we plan to roll out to the entire Sultanate over the coming months. So everyone will be able to benefit from faster speeds on one of our great value packages which are designed to suit different usage requirements and budgets.”

The company has spent more than RO95 million to date on upgrading its network to date and will invest a further significant amount on network expansion and modernisation this year, said the statement.

New and existing customers can sign up to the new service at any of the 29 Nawras stores countrywide, it added. - TradeArabia News Service
