Nawras, one of Oman’s two telecom operators, has introduced the first fixed number portability service in the country.

The service gives business customers the opportunity to keep their existing numbers when joining Nawras from another operator.

The service can be used by any corporate customer using a Primary Rate Interface or PRI, which is the standard service used by most medium and large enterprises for carrying multiple calls across a network.

Adnan Zubaid Khan, product manager for fixed voice and international data services at Nawras, said: “Like the previous introduction of MNP for mobile lines, this new service enables corporate customers with PRI services to transfer their current fixed line numbers to Nawras, in order to start benefiting from our pleasingly different products and services.

“FNP for corporate customers with PRIs is the first step in a service that will expand over time to enable more corporate customers to join Nawras.”

Nawras, which is part of Qatar’s Qtel Group, competes with Oman’s incumbent operator, Omantel.
