Muscat, 6 December 2011 – Nawras, Oman’s customer friendly communications provider is offering value for money with new monthly mobile broadband internet options.

Customers can now browse the web for longer, read more emails and check social networks more often. Nawras is committed to making it easier for customers to communicate wherever they may be.”
Nawras data plans can be used with a smartphone, tablet, modem or dongle and start from a 1-day prepaid plan over 24 hours with 1GB for just one Omani Rial. The Gold 12GB postpaid monthly plan for 29 Omani Rials and the postpaid Platinum plan with 100GB for 99 Omani Rials provide options for customers who need higher data provision.
