Oore­doo leads the best video net­work ex­pe­ri­ence in Oman

Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

MUS­CAT: Set­ting new highs in cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence, Oore­doo has been recog­nised by Akamai, the world’s largest and most trusted cloud de­liv­ery plat­form, for pro­vid­ing users with the best video ex­pe­ri­ence in Oman.

The ac­co­lade was based on the net­work’s video stream­ing across four cat­e­gories; video start-up, video played with buffer­ing, video buf­fer tim­ing, and video bi­trate.

Feras bin Ab­dul­lah Al Shaikh, direc­tor of Con­sumer Sales at Oore­doo said: “Cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence is at the heart of our busi­ness. Bring­ing it to life is what we aim for; through our prod­ucts, ser­vices and in­ter­ac­tions with cus­tomers. There is a high de­mand for qual­ity video stream­ing and we want to make sure that users can stream with­out in­ter­rup­tion and get the best data ex­pe­ri­ence – and now they can. And we con­tinue to en­hance our net­work so that ev­ery­one can stay con­nected to stream, view and share. We are very proud of this ac­knowl­edge­ment from Akamai, which once again demon­strates that we are the lead­ing net­work in Oman.”

With the best video net­work in the Sul­tanate, Oore­doo sur­passes the com­pe­ti­tion with video startup, load­ing speeds, buffer­ing time and buffer­ing while play­ing, all of which al­low users to stream with no de­lays. When com­pared to com­peti­tors within the mar­ket, over a 6-month pe­riod, Oore­doo’s net­work per­formed bet­ter over­all in all four cat­e­gories. As the Sul­tanate’s data ex­pe­ri­ence lead­ers, Oore­doo is com­mit­ted to con­tin­u­ing to upgrade its high-speed net­work and al­ready has over 90% of Oman’s pop­u­la­tion cov­ered by 4G.

Feras added, “We have worked hard to make sure our cus­tomers can en­joy the in­ter­net. We con­tinue to meet set bench­marks for user ex­pe­ri­ence while in­creas­ing the video qual­ity for cus­tomers through our cutting-edge net­work. We have been work­ing on an un­prece­dented ex­pan­sion plan, our ‘Su­per­net’ to trans­form the Sul­tanate’s dig­i­tal land­scape; adding a to­tal of over 1,000 new lo­ca­tions to the com­pany’s grid and pro­vid­ing a num­ber of in­cred­i­ble ben­e­fits to res­i­dents, tourists, and busi­nesses in Oman – more ex­ten­sive, faster, and more sta­ble con­nec­tiv­ity to boost so­cio-eco­nomic growth.”

Akamai is the global leader in Con­tent De­liv­ery Net­work ser­vices. With more than 240,000 servers in over 130 coun­tries and within more than 1,700 net­works around the world, Akamai de­liv­ers nearly 3 tril­lion in­ter­net in­ter­ac­tions each day.
