The telecommunications regulatory authority of the sultanate of Oman (TRA) and Ookla are engaging in a collaborative arrangement as part of TRA’s aim to leverage the latest technologies and up-to-date insights for understanding mobile and fixed broadband performance across Oman.

This comes at a time when 5G rollout in the country is gaining momentum, and Ookla’s enterprise solutions and first-party data are set to empower TRA in assessing the adoption of 5G networks in the Sultanate. This collaboration should help drive network improvements in Oman, delivering significant new value to local mobile operators who build the networks and the consumers who rely on them.

“Ookla’s unique data insights will help TRA identify weak spots and consequently guide network operators to improve their networks, in turn creating a better experience for the Omani people,” said TRA executive manager strategic planning unit Engr. Ahmed Hassan Al Haddabi. “We look forward to leveraging Ookla’s data to assist us in making informed decisions for advancing Oman’s ranking internationally in support of the government’s Oman 2040 vision.”

Ookla’s high-caliber network intelligence solutions will give the TRA an insightful view of network performance in Oman, and allow it to benchmark against its regional peers. This effort further aligns with the goals of the Oman 2040 vision of preparing for the impacts of technology and the digital transformation taking place in the Sultanate.

Thrilled to assist and support TRA as they seek to drive the development of Oman’s telecom sector, Ookla co-founder and CEO Doug Suttles said, “With our consumer-initiated methodology, powerful cross-platform testing engine and global network of high-throughput servers, Ookla is a definitive source for 5G network intelligence and measurement. Ookla works with many regulators in the GCC states and beyond to provide actionable insights into the performance of national 5G networks as they evolve.”
