Ross Cormack, CEO of Nawras
Ross Cormack, CEO of Nawras, will join other telecom Chief Executives from the Middle East and North Africa at the fourth Annual Abu Dhabi Telecoms CEO Summit on 14 May. In a session entitled The Excitement of the Inflection Point between the Broadband Avalanche and Traditional Telecoms, Cormack will highlight the company’s role in delivering broadband in the Sultanate while addressing the challenges and opportunities ahead.
In line with His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said’s economic vision for 2020, Nawras now provides a combination of state of the art transmission and WiMAX technologies to serve 87% of households with Home Broadband. During the last year alone, daily data traffic on Nawras broadband increased by 18 times which underlines the extent of coverage and enthusiastic customer response.
Ross Cormack said: “Our vision for Nawras mirrors that of Oman. High quality communications is important in serving modern society and since we first launched our services in 2005, we have strived to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers by providing pleasingly different services and an extensive range of flexible plans to suit different lifestyles and usage requirements.”
In 2007, the company was the first to introduce 3G technology to the Sultanate and earlier this year was the first in Oman to demonstrate 4G LTE technology to the general public. Nawras has equipped the Muscat Grand Mall – part of the new Tilal Complex in Muscat - with a full fibre network and is providing a super-fast fibre based broadband service to the new commercial outlets and offices in the complex which is planned to be one of the biggest integrated real estate developments in the country.
Nawras products are underpinned by award-winning customer service and the company is committed to enriching the lives of people in Oman and delighting customers through better communication.
