Dhiraagu claims 90,000 subscribers

19 Oct 2004

The Maldives’ only mobile operator Dhiraagu has revealed that there are over 90,000 mobile users in the country, 15,000 of which are contract customers and the remainder pre-paid subscribers. Dhiraagu launched cellular services in the Maldives in October 1999, and has enjoyed a monopoly on the sector ever since, although it is set to face competition before too long with the government currently in the process of awarding a second GSM concession.
