  • Rural communities are facing digital isolation

    Source: National Statistic of Oman

    Rural and remote rural is 23% of the total

    population

    There covers approx.. 3500 Omani communities

    The cost to cover these communities is up to 100

    times that of the rest of the country and requires

    subsidy in order to the services to be affordable.

    TRA had number of previous attempts to support

    this under the operator USO obligations and with

    separate tender but real progress is slow

  • Sultanates cabinet has decided to implement the proposed National Broadband Plan

    The implementation called for accelerated government supported approach rather than normal market evolution in order to achieve objectives

  • Coordinated implementation of NBS involves all key stakeholder

    Providing wholesale infrastructure faster and more affordable

    TRA Implementing regulatory change

    Delivering Next Generation services &

    IPTV

    Increasing fixed services competition

    Delivering Next Generation services

    Introduction of other entities and ISPs in the

    service layer using OBC infrastructure

    ITA Stimulating supply

    Delivering e-Government services

    MMOTC National Broadband Strategy and Telecom policies

    Supply of broadband services Stimulating demand

  • Oman Broadband Company was created to fill the market gap and accelerate the supply of affordable infrastructure

    OBC Vision: To provide efficient and affordable broadband infrastructure connecting all residents and businesses in Oman delivering economic benefits in alignment with Governments Vision of building sustainable knowledge based economy.

    Support for the existing operators

    Lowering the entry barrier for new entrants to compete on services

    Working alongside TRA and ITA to implement coordinated plan

    Solving previous issues in connecting rural communities

    Alignment with all other government infrastructure projects to reuse civil works

  • OBC is positioned as independent wholesale operation complementing existing operators not competing with them

    Category OBC position

    Customers OBC customers are the licensed telecom service providers, utility companies,

    government and specialist service providers using NBAP (traffic control,

    municipalities).

    Competitors OBC is designed to provide a utility style service hence it is not competing

    with service or infrastructure providers. It complements them.

    Service Offering Infrastructure services and other wholesale services

    Regulatory Licensed telecom services provider focusing on passive infrastructure

    services with provision of active service on case by case basis

  • OBC strategy implementation will be targeting

    1. Coverage and

    accelerated roll-out
