Helping communities within the Sultanate transition to the digital age, Ooredoo has updated 37 of its Home Internet locations with Massive Multiple-input and Multiple-Output (Massive MiMO) technology in preparation for the roll-out of 5G. Sites include areas across Muscat, Al Batinah, Al Wusta, A'Sharqiyah, Dhahira and Dakhiliyah, with many more to follow.
Part of the evolution towards 5G, the Massive MiMO technology dramatically increases the speed at which data is transferred across the network to 100 times faster than cellular connections and 10 times faster than the speediest home broadband service. Tests showed it achieved a 50% improvement in downlink user speed, 30% increase in uplink user speed, 100% improvement in downlink and uplink cell speed and an 80% rise in the volume of traffic on the network. All of which improves upload and download speeds as well as the network’s capacity to connect more customers.
To find out more about Ooredoo’s services, please visit any of the 57 Ooredoo stores located across the Sultanate or download the Ooredoo Oman app.
