September 11, 2017

Awasr has been crowned as Oman’s fastest fixed broadband network. The young service provider was awarded as ‘Oman’s Fastest Fixed Broadband Network’ by Ookla, the company behind Speedtest, which is recognised as the global leader in Internet testing and analysis.

The award was received by Awasr’s chief operating officer Abdulmonem al Futaisi from Ookla at a ceremony held at the Sheraton Oman Hotel on Monday.

The award is a major milestone for Awasr, which has earned the distinction of being the fastest fixed service provider in the shortest span of time. Having launched its operations in March 2016, Awasr has wasted no time in meeting its set targets, even crossing the established parameters to reinvent the concepts of speed for users in and around Muscat, with its fibrenet packages, the company said in a press release.

Speaking on the occasion, Futaisi called it a validation of Awasr’s unprecedented growth in the country. He said, “We are proud to be branded by an esteemed organisation such as Ookla as the fastest fixed broadband network in the country. It is the result of all our hard work in the last one and a half years to reach this milestone. We have, since the day we launched Awasr, worked tirelessly to meet every challenge and fulfill every objective to widen our network and assure our customers the availability of speed and choice that suits their needs.”
