TRA hands over land use contract to Oman Tower Company

Muscat: The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has handed over contracts for the use of a number of government lands designated for the construction of communication towers to Oman Tower Company (OTC) to invest in the same field, as well as to maintain the general view of this type of towers/stations, so that these towers are used by all operators licensed telecommunications services in the Sultanate and government agencies and departments concerned with the provision of wireless communications.
This follows the Government directive to unify the efforts in the services infrastructure in general and the telecom in particular.
This comes in support of the provision of mobile telecommunications networks throughout Oman and provide comprehensive coverage through the construction of these towers, which will reduce the burden on telecommunications operators and redirect their investments in providing better services to users in Oman.
OTC was established in early 2018 by Oman 70 Holding, Oman Broadband in partnership with Camusat International Group to build and manage the wireless passive infrastructure and associated services and equipment .
