Omani telco, Nawras, has completed a project to upgrade its base station in Quriyat to 3G+ technology and has also added a second data carrier to the area.

The upgrade was part of phase two of the telco’s Network Turbocharging programme, which is being rolled out nationwide.

The upgrade project is continuing along the Al Batinah coastline from Al Suwaiq towards Shinas. By November, customers in Fahud area will start to benefit from the second stage of the initiative, Nawras said. “The countrywide turbocharging programme will continue in phases until all Nawras base station technology has been replaced, according to Nawras.

Wolfgang Wemhoff, CTO, Nawras, said: “Many new sites have been going live over the past 12 months as our team of more than 500 people works around the clock to ensure customers can experience a world class service from Nawras. After turbocharging the densely populated areas of Muscat we are now activating more sites and rolling out the new network technology to many more customers in areas north and south of the capital.”

Nawras invested OR60 million in the first phase of the network turbocharging programme.
