The mobile sector of the telecommunication market has bloomed greatly in the last 5 years, with 5,277 million subscribers and 160% penetration rate in 2012.

The dominance in market share for mobile service providers are held by two major players, with Oman Mobile owning 48.4% and Nawras holding 40.7% while the rest are held by resellers. The TRA’s efforts on establishing and maintaining a revised competitive framework are underway. Once finalized, the TRA will issue determinations and impose suitable solutions that will mitigate potential risk of harm by dominant players like Oman Mobile and Nawras.
