Commenting on the award, Dr Amer bin Awadh al Rawas, CEO of Omantel, said, “We are delighted to receive this prestigious award which showcases that the company efforts are recognised not just at the local and regional levels but also at the international level.”
'Winning this award, which is another milestone for the company, mirrors the success of the company strategy and programmes to develop its business especially after the integration of the fixed-line and mobile operations under one unified operating model and later into one legal entity,” he added.
