Oman - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - 2012 Update - LTE And New Submarine Cables Drive Broadband In Oman
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3ffpt7/oman_telecoms) has announced the addition of the "Oman - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband" report to their offering.
LTE And New Submarine Cables Drive Broadband In Oman
Oman's telecom market continues to evolve in response to increasing competition and technological trends.
Fixed line incumbnet Omantels dominance faces renewed pressure after Omans regulator, TRA, unblocked VoIP services during 2012. Already it is being challenged by the fixed telephony services launched by its main mobile competitor, Nawras.
Broadband services are available via ADSL, Fibre-to-the-Home (FttH), WiFi, WiMAX and mobile broadband. Broadband represents the majority of Internet connections and although local loop unbundling regulations are in place competition is predominantly infrastructure based. Oman has taken advantage of its geographical location to improve international Internet bandwidth and redundancy, with three new submarine cables entering service in 2012.
Recognising the potential of applying ICT to improve both social and economic development, Oman has taken steps to develop an Internet economy, with significant government funded initiatives launched in the areas of public administration (e-government), online payments, e-health and e-learning.
Given the mature mobile voice market, both OmanTel and Nawras have shifted their focus to mobile broadband, deploying HSPA and LTE networks. Take up has been very successful, with mobile broadband subscriptions outnumbering fixed broadband subscriptions by over 10 to 1.
