Omantel has partnered with data center operator Wingu Group to establish a point of presence (PoP) in Djibouti. The company is thus beginning its expansion into the African market. Omantel will be able to forge new wholesale partnerships with telecom operators and hyperscalers, improve the use of connectivity between Oman and Africa, facilitate better business models and provide better support to customers with connectivity requests to and from Africa.
This partnership is part of Omantel's ambition to establish itself as a leading regional wholesale service provider in the Middle East and Africa. The company already has a presence in various countries around the world, including France, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Singapore, and is pursuing its vision, "From Oman to the World."
The establishment of Omantel's point of presence in Djibouti comes at a time of rapid growth in demand for high-speed telecom services and telecom traffic on the continent. Telecom operators and other digital service providers need more wholesale capacity to upgrade and improve their network coverage to meet this growing demand.
