Muscat's Internet be better than Verizon in Manhattan. Omantel began deploying fiber in 2015. Like Chunghwa and Net Cologne, they are now terminating that fiber in the basement and using the existing copper wires for G.fast. Speeds today will be 500-800 megabits. Soon, perhaps next years, the 212 MHz chips will become available and offer something like 1.4 gigabits.
80% of Omanis are urban, many living in apartment buildings that are natural for G.fast. The population is generally young and well-educated, with a majority going to college. 75% of the population use the Internet.
