Omantel has become the only mobile network operator in Oman to offer 5G international roaming with the introduction of its services, offering customers a convenient and seamless experience to enjoy high speed data services while abroad.
As part of the initial phase in its push towards secure, consistent, and fast global 5G connectivity, Omantel has made this international roaming facility available in the GCC through regional and global partners to announce more 5G international roaming destinations in the coming few weeks.
The move highlights Omantel’s customer –first strategy and leadership of the telecom sector in the Sultanate, providing cutting edge ICT solutions and telecom infrastructure and service capabilities.
Omantel expects to continually meet their subscribers’ current and future 5G needs by making the technology an integral part of its offerings.
Commenting on the development, Awatif Al Mandhari, manager of roaming services at the wholesale business unit of Omantel said, “When we talk about 5G, Omantel is on the fast track. The company has proved its agility in bringing the best global telecom solutions to the people of Oman. After being the first mobile network provider to launch 5G for mobile devices, Omantel is now taking its reach beyond the borders. The service will be beneficial for individuals and business travellers who need fast access to information and data on the go.”
The 5G international roaming service introduction enforces Omantel’s position as a key player in Oman’s telecom sector as a result of foresight and investments in state-of-the-art infrastructure. The launch is the latest in a series of achievements by Omantel in adapting future technologies and further solidifying Oman’s image as the region’s ICT gateway. Besides 5G, Omantel is already offering an impressively wide international roaming coverage, reaching to more than 700 roaming partners in more than 200 countries.
Omantel’s mobile network has been recently rated as the fastest in Oman by Ookla, a neutral online platform dedicated to measuring the performance of broadband networks around the world.
Omantel is the Sultanate’s first and leading integrated telecommunications services provider, enabling the digital society to flourish, allowing new ways of doing business and delivering a world of information, news and entertainment.
