Awasr to launch fixed landline services

MUSCAT, April 28, 2016

Awasr, Oman’s first specialised broadband service provider, has been awarded the licence to provide general fixed telephony services by the Sultanate’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), a report said.

Awasr is building a network with capacity to deliver high-speed fibre-optic Internet of up to 1 Gbps, added the Oman Observer report.

With this, Awasr will be able to offer international call services, the report said.

“We were keen on meeting all the Class 1 License requirements.  These requirements reflect our continued commitment towards improving lifestyles and developing the Omani business environment, through delivering high-speed fiber-optic Internet to both locals and expats across the Sultanate,” Mohamad el Madhoun, commercial adviser at Awasr was quoted as saying in the report.

Issam al Ismaili, head of Marketing, Awasr, said: “We have already begun working with our partners and the concerned authorities to build a general telephony infrastructure covering the Sultanate’s different provinces.

“We will deliver top-notch services at highly competitive and affordable prices to everyone, especially since affordability is one of Awasr’s core principles aiming to achieve sustainable development in the Sultanate.”
