Omani operator Nawras has signed an agreement with Huawei to upgrade its 3G radio access network and increase coverage, penetration, capacity and the speed of the entire network.

Nawras said that about 30% of its 3G cell sites will be upgraded before the end of December 2012.

The telco also confirmed that it is deploying an LTE network, which will cover all major areas of Muscat including Ruwi, Central Business District, Wadi Kabir, Muttrah, Qurm, Azaiba, Al Khuwair, Ghala, Baushar, Mawaleh and The Wave, by the end of 2012. All major cities in Oman will be covered by June 2013.

Nawras will launch LTE services on the 1800 spectrum.

“4G LTE will essentially revolutionise the way we communicate with superfast, high quality broadband internet service, unlocking a world of communication opportunities beyond imagination,” said Ross Cormack, CEO, Nawras.
