Oman Broadband's chief executive officer, Eng Said bin Abdullah al-Mantheri, signed an agreement with Wujha's chief executive officer, Hazza al-Saadi, to implement the programme. 

Al-Saadi said the agreement covered up to nine projects of the company, including residential, commercial, and community projects.

These construction sites were located in the wilayat of Al A'mirat, as well as wilayat A'Seeb's Al Maabila city, both in Muscat. 

The programme with Oman Broadband would provide "an added value and basic service for residential and commercial units", al-Saadi said, adding that 'smart' properties would be "very necessary in the coming period". 

Al-Mantheri said Oman Broadband had similar plans to "sign several agreements [...] with many developers, industrial zones, and the economic zone in Duqm" in the future. 

These programmes would "ensure that all buildings are equipped with the necessary infrastructure [required] to operate", Al-Mantheri added. 

Commenting on the agreement with Wujha, he continued: "The agreement signed with Wujha is part of the company's commitment to continue to provide the infrastructure for smart applications in all the sultanate's industrial, commercial, tourism, and residential areas.

"It also comes to ensure that the necessary pathways are available in Wujha property to facilitate the fibre optic expansion of these buildings and thus make them ready for all smart applications," he added, according to ONA
