The Sultanate of Oman has established a progressive mobile sector which comprises substantial coverage of both 3G and 4G LTE networks. There have also been trials conducted, networks upgraded, and spectrum allocated, in readiness for 5G.

The mobile sector in Oman is led by Omantel and Ooredoo, and both operators have a similar, and sizeable, market share. The mobile industry became more competitive in the last decade or so, due to the introduction of MVNOs, which have captured around 11-12% market share.

The launch of a third mobile network operator in Oman in 2020 will increase competition further. The regulator recently signed a strategic MoU with The Vodafone Group, along with a local consortium of investors, to form a third mobile network operator in Oman which will be branded as Vodafone.

While Oman's fixed broadband infrastructure penetration is considered low, it is being improved upon with the building of fibre-based networks as part of Oman's National Broadband Strategy. By 2040 it is hoped that all homes and businesses will be connected to the national broadband infrastructure.

Key developments:
  • In 2019, one of the mobile leaders, Omantel, announced that its network was 5G ready.
  • The two mobile network operators (MNOs) were awarded 15 year licenses in 2019.
  • VoIP subscriptions are on the rise in Oman.
  • Oman is well positioned to be a technology hub in the Middle East as it is well located between Asia, Africa and Europe and has access to several submarine cable systems.
