TRA announces Oman's 5G roadmap

Muscat: Oman telecom companies will now be able to provide 5G spectrum services.

The Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) announced on Tuesday the details of Oman's 5G roadmap which will contribute to the development of many sectors such as education, health, logistics and others.

TRA officials said, "The authority began early preparations to enable companies to provide 5G services and exempt companies from annual frequency usage fees for one year to encourage investment in the sector."

"In the next five years, 4400 stations will be constructed by Omantel and Ooredoo and they will conduct workshops to inform relevant government agencies of the applications in preparation for their readiness to use it."
