Omantel's domestic operations performance

At the level of domestic operations, Omantel's revenues grew by 8.2% to reach R.O 458.1 million, compared to the corresponding period. Revenue growth is mainly coming from wholesale transit voice revenue which increased by RO 17 Mn and device revenue which increased by RO 10.9 Mn.

Profit for the nine months ended September 2023 stands at RO 54.7 Mn compared to RO 54.9 Mn in the previous period. Inspite of the aggressive competition in both Mobile and Fixed segments net profit is maintained at similar levels compared to last year on account of sustainable revenue growth in Postpaid Mobile revenue, fixed broadband revenue and reduction in finance cost and Tax expense.
