Well, it would seem that the people behind our beloved ISP are actually doing some work on providing some better speeds to the Omani populace. My intenet connection had crashed a lot of times this week to the point where I just got fed up with it and closed the laptop altogether until - hey, presto - some one or two days ago it fired up to better speeds close to 51KBps. The average that I ever got was 43KBps.
Comex is coming very soon and there's been a news bulletin in the written media that Omantel will be introducing new ADSL packages to cater to the needs of their strengthening number of demanding customers. About time, too.
It is said that these packages will include an upgrade to the residential 384KBps connections to 512KBps as well as the introduction of new 1MB, 2MB, 4MB and 8MB connections with no caps and free download limits reaching a level of 10GB per month.
Let's hope the prices that they will provide will also cater to the customers torn up pockets. After all, we are living the golden age.
