Ooredoo completes Oman fibre backbone


Ooredoo Oman has completed its national fibre backbone, covering almost 5,500km across the country.

The company has established an independent national infrastructure to bring speed and services to customers and businesses countrywide, the operators stated.

“The conclusion of this project signifies the dawn of a new era in Oman’s telecom sector, one where we are able to keep up-to-date with emerging technologies from around the world, and deliver a host of socioeconomic benefits that support human growth and His Majesty the Sultan’s vision for the country,” said Greg Young, CEO of Ooredoo Oman. “It is not only about having the available technology, but the opportunities that a superfast network affords. Our aim is to inspire human growth and support everything from government, businesses and SMEs to schools, associations and charities, through digital initiatives.”

Young added, “This is not simply an upgrade to legacy technology, it is an entirely new and unparalleled network development. We are no longer dependent on using the fibre or transmission from other operators and can single-handedly ensure that we are able to avoid network outages or interruptions to service, which could impact the country significantly.”
