Receiving the accolades at MWC in Barcelona, Bader Al Zidi, Vodafone Oman CEO said, “It is a moment of great pride to be receiving multiple award wins from Opensignal as a result of our hard work, dedication and perseverance. In 2023 we had ambitious plans for our network, aiming to fast-track our 5G roll-out and grow our reach and population coverage all the while focusing on providing customers with an overall elevated experience.
