Dhiraagu expands 3G coverage to 98% of Maldivians

1 Sep 2015

Dhivehi Raajjeyge Gulhun (Dhiraagu), the Maldives’ incumbent telecoms operator, has revealed that it has expanded the coverage footprint of its 3G network to 98% of the population. Haveeru Online writes that the expansion drive forms part of a government directive to supply 40 islands with internet access by the end of this year, although the company itself has asserted that it is on track to provide broadband coverage to all 200 inhabited islands of the Maldives by that date.
