Over the years, the telecoms company has consistently been at the forefront of supporting businesses in Oman and serving customers across a multitude of economic sectors. Meanwhile, it continues to introduce the latest communications technologies and innovative products and services, to enrich customers’ digital lives across the Sultanate.
