Omantel 3G

In case you haven't heard, Omantel finally decided to join the rest of the mobile telecom world by upgrading to 3G. This is not new news, the tender was late last year and was awarded on January 23rd. Nokia bid RO. 77 million ($200 million), Ericsson's bid came in much lower at RO. 52 million ($135 million) and China's Huawei won the tender with an unbelievable bid of RO. 17.7 million ($46 million).

The mind boggles!

Did Oman Mobile and OmanTel already merge again, or you mistakenly said OmanTel instead of Oman Mobile?

While they do operate under two names, Omantel is the mother company and owns 99$% of Oman Mobile. They will merge soon and then there will only be Omantel. All strategic decisions are made at Omantel level, not Oman Mobile.

What we need is competitive prices, not state-of-the-art feathers!

I guess the merging will be done by the end of the year.

Good! I am looking forward to use the video calls.

muscati said...

Nobody's surprised at the difference in prices between the bids??

I still dont able to know that whether Oman Mobile will go with Huawei or Nokia for this order.
Any body knows? said...
