Nawras Telecom to launch 3G in Oman
Nawras Telecom, in which Qatar Telecom and Tele Denmark Communications (TDC) will hold a nearly 70 per cent stake, plans to offer mobile telephone services that are at par with those available in Qatar, the Qtel Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Nasser M. Marafih, said in Muscat Wednesday.
In addition, Nawras Telecom will launch Third Generation (3G) services in Oman within the first few years of operations, he added.
According to The Peninsula, Dr. Nasser said that under the initial roll-out plan, Nawras Telecom will install 160 mobile telephony repeater and cell-sites all across the Sultanate, which will be increased to 383 in about 18 months from launch of the service. (menareport.com)
