Arab Advisors Group released a new series of reports: The 5G Handbook. The series tackles one 5G-operating Arab country at a time, to explore, review, and analyze the development of 5G networks and study the efforts put forward by all stakeholders. Arab Advisors Group released the second report of the series, “The 5G Handbook – A Focus on Oman”, in July 2023. The report answers the following questions:
    • What type of 5G plans do telecom operators in Oman offer?
    • What frequency bands are utilized by Oman’s telecom operators? And with which vendors did telcos collaborate to build their networks?
    • How are telecom operators in Oman monetizing their 5G networks?
    • Are telcos’ 5G services in Oman limited to traditional telecom services only? Or did they penetrate vertical markets?
    • How mature are the 5G use cases deployed by telcos in Oman? and in which sectors did they deploy these cases?
    • How transparent are Oman’s telecom operators when it comes to reaped benefits of 5G implementations?
    • How did the Omani government encourage the deployment of 5G technology in the country, especially in vertical markets?
