MNO market share, the tower landscape and the entrance of a third operator

With the potential entrance of a third MNO into the market, dynamics in the Omani telecommunications sector may be about to change. What’s more, rumours have surfaced that a tower deal may come to the table in early 2019, further opening the Middle Eastern market to the independent towerco model. TowerXchange examines the dynamics at play in Oman.

The current mobile market

Oman has 6.6mn mobile subscribers (of which 89% are prepaid) in a population of 4.6mn, leading to a mobile penetration rate of 146% (Source: TRA). There are currently two mobile network operators in the market: Omantel and Ooredoo, and two resellers: Renna Mobile and Friendi Mobile.
