Oman implementing rural connectivity strategy


Oman’s regulator has unveiled an initiative aimed at connecting over 500 remote communities and villages in the Sultanate.

The National Broadband Strategy revealed by the TRA (Telecommunications Regulatory Authority) seeks to extend telecom and internet connectivity to underserved areas of the country.



The programme will receive funding of OMR15 million (US$39 million) from Oman’s Ministry of Finance in order to achieve this objective, reports the Oman News Agency.

Oman Broadband Company (OBC) is implementing the initiative, which will use either fibre optic broadband or satellite depending on the terrain.
