CommsMEA Critical analysis for telecommunications executives

Oman awards third fixed-line licence

Posted by: Telco insider

This story is everywhere and it's completely untrue. If the TRA had awarded a licence to PCCW it would mention is somewhere on its website (http://www.tra.gov.om/newsite1/ClassI.aspx?Menu_ID=23) This is the danger with the way in which journalists now get their news from the news rather than actually independently checking it: Reuter got this wrong about a week ago and literally hundreds of other news services have blindly written articles on the back of that original mistake. Editor's response: Thanks for your feedback. I did verify this story with two operators in Oman, and both were aware of the development.
