Etisalat Group has submitted a bid for the third mobile licence in the Sultanate of Oman.

“The bid is in line with Etisalat Group’s expansion strategy considering the market potential and similarities, footprint proximity to its core market, and likely synergies,” the telco said in a statement.

Oman’s TRA revealed plans to offer a third mobile licence, to compete with incumbent OmanTel and second operator Ooredoo Oman, in November 2016.

Zain Group and STC have both already placed applications for the licence.

The qualified bidders will be announced on 14 August, 2017 by Omani’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority.
