In their annual benchmarking study to analyse the network in key populated areas of the country, Ooredoo claims that it has emerged as superior for mobile network speed and quality of service.
Conducted by a leading US-based network benchmarking firm, Global Wireless Solutions (GWS), the test covered three key areas of Oman; Muscat, Salalah and Sohar, for both indoor and outdoor coverage. Ooredoo’s network not only came first in Oman using GWS's OneScore ranking for mobile data performance, but also topped the overall OneScore ranking which looks at both voice and data performance. Ooredoo claims that its network has seen a 60% increase in 4G coverage over the last 12 months, a 70% increase in overall network capacity and a doubling of capacity in several hotspot locations across Oman.
Using the latest techniques available on 3G and 4G technologies, Ooredoo said that it has been able to significantly boost speed and ultimately, customer experience when streaming or using the internet.
