Oman Telecoms & IT

Oman offers a diverse as well as highly competitive telecoms sector, with two full-network operators and three virtual network operators catering to a market of 4m people. Despite this, however, the sector has continued to expand on the back of rising subscriptions and increasing mobile penetration rates. Growing market maturity has led to operators looking to boost take-up of mobile internet and value-added services in order to drive revenues, while targeting niches with innovative offers. Meanwhile, the IT segment is thriving, with a particular emphasis being placed on the support of SMEs. The Sas Programme, a notable example this, aims to support young entrepreneurs by providing technical and business training to IT startups.
