I was in Saudi recently and they started offering Orbit Internet- DSL, very fast connection, the works. Is there Orbit ISP in Oman? Or any other DSL providers? Reply will be appreciated.

Omantel was the only one offering it in Salalah. It was offered when I left in 2003. Muscat has had it for a year or so before then. I now understand there are other telecom providers in Oman, but very favorable government licensing rates are offered to Omantel, so prices won't necessarily go down with competition. I think the other provider is either SSB or Jawad [of Mustapha-Jawad fame]. Orbit is usually found as a satelite programming service provider in Oman.

Did you actually find out how well the Orbit connection works? They'll never put DSL at my exchange, so I'm interested, but am reluctant to be the guinea pig.
