      Oman-based telecom service provider Azyan Telecom has signed a deal for Kymeta u8 terminals, which it will use to access OneWeb’s Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) connectivity. The terminals will be delivered to the Omani market in the first quarter of 2024. The companies announced the deal on Wednesday at Cabsat. 

      Azyan Telecom said the deal will expand telecom capabilities in the country, including low-latency communications in areas held back by frequent hurricanes and challenging terrain.

      “Today marks an exciting milestone, both for the growth of Oman’s LEO market and our efforts to enhance high-speed satellite connectivity for companies and communities across the region. Our deal with Kymeta will allow us to deliver on the widespread demand for reliable connectivity, in line with Oman’s digital transformation strategy,” commented Ahmed Saber, COO of Azyan Telecom. 

      Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Kymeta called the order “significant.”
