Muscat, 7 February 2012 – Nawras, Oman’s customer friendly communications provider, is now helping businesses in rural areas by providing enhanced coverage via the launch of VSAT technology. Even In the most secluded locations, companies can now gain access to the internet or connect to their corporate networks nationwide.
