MUSCAT – After commencing its trial operations on December 30, 2021, Vodafone commemorated the official launch of its operations in the Sultanate of Oman on March 6. The event took place in a festive ceremony held at the Royal Opera House Muscat, under the auspices of HH Sayyid Theyazin bin Haithm Al Said, Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth, alongside the presence of several guests, as well as members of the company’s Board of Directors and Executive Management in attendance.
In his speech during the ceremony, Bader Zidi, CEO of Vodafone in Oman, stated: “Today, we mark the official opening of a new chapter in the history of the country’s digital mobile communications. We officially, inaugurate the launch of one of the biggest brands in the world right here in Oman, which will mark a revolution in the technology sector. We will do things differently and digitally from the start and, we are exactly that different and we are truly digital.”
He continued, “We strive to be a key contributor towards In-Country Value, through our philosophy of utilising and capitalising on existing infrastructure and enhancing partnerships with local entities where we cannot build.”
Vodafone launched its operations with the opening of its Experience Hub in the Mall of Oman, late last year, alongside an exclusive launch offer for its subscribers. Customers looking to join the Vodafone network can simply register and receive the service, quickly and easily.
Highlighting the results of the past few weeks, Jan Holzberg, Commercial Director of Vodafone in Oman, said: “We were expecting a huge response from subscribers who were looking for an operator with global experience when it comes to telecommunications within the local market. However, we were still pleasantly surprised by the large inflow of customers, since our application received tens of thousands of download requests during the first initial days of the offer. This is a positive indicator for the future of Vodafone and we look forward to providing a state-of-the-art and digitalised experience for telecommunication subscribers here in Oman, in the upcoming period.”
Vodafone is available across the Sultanate through the My Vodafone Application on Google Play Store and the App Store and in more than 3,500 outlets across Oman. The full list can be found on www.vodafone.om Photos: Thani Al Siyabi
