The demand on fixed broadband service has recently witnessed a considerable growth with the number of subscribers crossing 100,000.

Omantel Home Broadband service enjoys the highest share in the market with more than 60 per cent of the total number of home broadband customers; thanks to the reliability, high speeds, unlimited usage this unique service offers. Multiple users in the same home can share the service through the Wi-Fi which is easily activated once the router is on.
